The Brain and Its Physiology; A Critical Disquisition on the Methods of Determining the Relations Subsisting Between the Structure and Functions of the Encephalon
English physician Daniel Noble (1810-1885) is today best known for his contributions to the study of mental illness. This book is mainly concerned with phrenology, a discipline very popular in the 19th century but beginning to lose acceptance among scientists by the 1840s. However, the idea that certain parts of the brain are associated with certain functions still forms the basis for modern neuroscience.
