This fascinating history describes how our understanding of nerve cell function has developed, from the ancient Greeks though to our present understanding of the molecular mechanisms of neuronal function. Sidney Ochs begins with a chronological look at the history of nerves from the 5th Century B.C. to the early 18th century. He then adopts a thematic approach, carrying key topics from the 18th century to the present. A History of Nerve Functions will serve as an invaluable resource for historians of neuroscience and medicine, philosophers of science and medicine, as well as for neuroscientists.
