This is a scholarly historical survey of the progress of neurology from the earliest times, written for the public. It presents a plea for wider dissemination of the knowledge that nervous and mental disorders are both related to physical disturbances of the body which are open to investigation and treatment by scientific methods. "Until all men and women reach adult life equipped with some sound, though elementary, knowledge of the structure and functions of their own bodies and minds, until they are endowed with some sense of responsibility to themselves and to their progeny, little practical use can be made of the rich harvest of scientific facts and laws which is now being reaped."
