  • NeuropsychologyNeuropsychology was first recorded being studied back to around 1700 B.C. Neuropsychology was also first talked about in record, by Rene Descartes, who lived from 1596 to 1650.Descartes thought movements were caused by animal spirits that moved through the body

    Rene Descartes

  • Rene DescartesEven though Descartes ideas were grand, little did he know a later book called, Anatomy of the Brain, would be published in 1664, and would prove his theory incorrect.Anatomy of the Brain was published by a man named Thomas Willis.Continued...

  • Thomas WillisThomas Willis thought the brain by itself had control over behavior, when everyone else thought CSF or ventricles had control.Willis discovered the two types of tissue matter: gray and white matter.CSF= Cerebro Spinal FluidVentricles are each of the four connected fluid-filled cavities in the center of the brain.Thomas Willis

  • The Circle of WillisIn addition to his novel, Anatomy Of The Brain, Thomas Willis was also the first person to discover the Circle of Willis.The Circle of Willis delivers blood throughout all parts of the brain. No portion of the brain could even function without The Circle of Willis.Roughly, only 34.5% of people have a complete Circle. However, having a complete Circle of Willis will help the owner avoid a stroke.

  • NeurosurgeryNeurosurgery today, has benefited from advances in computer assisted imaging, computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, positron emission tomography,magnetoencephalography, and the development of stereotactic surgery. The range of neurosurgery has become larger as new diagnostic techniques let surgeons preform more complicated surgeries.

  • Blood-Brain Barrier (BBB)When a man named Lewandowsky was studying potassium ferrocyanide injection into the brain in 1900, he was the first to use the term Blood-Brain Barrier. Although he called it, Bluthirnschranke.Lewandowsky changed the thoughts of many scientists, and brought about the idea of a barrier between blood and the brain. Also, between blood and CSFIn 1981, Stewart and Wiley first discovered the tight edges and originality of the B.B.B. by experimenting on embryonic chick gut and embryonic quail brain.

  • The Sylvian FissureIn 1641, Franciscus Sylvius discovered the deep cleft parting the temporal, frontal, and parietal lobes of the brain. This cleft is now known as the Sylvian Fissure.
