Evolution in Neurology

To (mental) health with you?

While we believe that neurology has gotten advanced in the 21st century and all these technological inventions are made only recently, we need to know that it has been a long process that has been ongoing for a couple of centuries.

We are sure that nobody told you about the fact that Neurologist Duchenne de Boulogne electrocuted a man’s face in the year 1862 so that he could read facial features. That must have been painful but it was just the beginning of the evolution in neurology, and it surely looked brutal too, but that work contributed to the modern understanding of neurology.
