9780881671056: The Citadel of the Senses and Other Essays

The book features several superbly written essays on the senses and the psychology of laughter, in which Dr. Critchley displays his penchant for reflection and his vast store of historic, scientific, and humanistic knowledge. Fascinating biographic sketches of Hughlings Jackson and Josef François Babinski are included, as well as a first-hand account of the author's membership in the Hexagon Club, an informal dining and discussion group of prominent neurologists. Dr. Critchley shares a wealth of entertaining historic anecdotes on now-discredited theories, treatments, and syndrome descriptions, and offers provocative insights and hypotheses on various neurologic syndromes, including migraine, aphasia, developmental dyslexia, visual agnosia, and language disorders characteristic of senescence.
