"It's tough to make predictions—particularly about the future."—Attributed to Yogi Berra
LAST YEAR, the two institutes of the National Institutes of Health most involved in the support of brain research, the National Institute of Neurological Diseases and Stroke and the National Institute of Mental Health, celebrated their 50th anniversaries (give or take a few years). A 2-day symposium outlined the remarkable progress in that period. I would like to reflect on what has occurred in neurology during that time, where we are now, and what we might expect in the coming years. I personally cannot go back the full 50 years, but I can pick up the action in the late 1950s and through the 1960s.
