Neurology
NEUROLOGY [Greek: neuron, nerve + logos, discourse] Term coined by Thomas Willis(1621–1675) in 1681. One of the earliest significant contributions was made by Sir Charles Bell (1774–1842), who differentiated nerves into sensory and motor components in 1811. The first modern treatise, Lehrbuch der Nerven-Krankheiten, was written by Moritz Heinrich Romberg(1795–1873) of Berlin in 1840. He gave a clear account of ataxia. Earlier treatises were written by: Robert Whytt(1714–1766) of Edinburgh on tuberculous meningitis in 1768, Domenico Cotugno (1736–1822) of Naples on sciatica in 1770, and James Parkinson (1755–1824) of London on paralysis agitans in 1817. Guillaume Benjamin Duchenne (1806–1875) of Paris described spinal muscular atrophy in 1849, differentiated between various forms of lead palsy, described spinal pathology of anterior poliomyelitis and pseudohypertrophic muscular dystrophy. Jean-Martin Charcot (1825–1893) of Paris, a physician at the Hospital of Salpetrière described: localization and functions of cerebral diseases (1876), cortical motor centers in man (1895), lesions in muscular atrophy (1886) and peroneal muscular atrophy. Sir William Richard Gowers (1845–1915), a London  professor of medicine at University College, gave the name ‘knee jerk’ to the tendon reflex of the knee, and in 1879 published an important textbook,Diseases of the Nervous System  and Pseudo-hypertrophic Muscular paralysis  (named Gower disease). Cortical areas responsible for specific isolated movements in the body were proposed by John Hughlings Jackson (1835–1911) in 1864, he described the unilateral localized form of epilepsy (Jacksonian fits).
