C93 - Boston City Hospital: The Cradle of American Neurology Part II

Event Time: Monday April 24, 2017 3:30 pm to 5:30 pm
Topic(s): General Neurology, Research Methodology, Education, and History
Director(s): Steven Sparr MD, FAAN
Description: The Neurological Unit at Boston City Hospital has been called the Cradle of American Neurology. From the time it was established by Stanley Cobb in the 1920s until Boston City Hospital ceased to exist as an independent entity in 1997, the Unit remained at the forefront of the development of neurology as a specialty both in terms of scientific advancement and training of generations of neurologists who assumed leadership roles throughout the country. Among the accomplishments of the faculty were: the discovery of the first effective anticonvulsant (phenytoin) using an animal model of epilepsy, the development of the multichannel EEG, the birth of child neurology as a discipline, the rebirth of behavioral neurology as a subspecialty, the development of the EMG as a physiological probe into the peripheral nervous system, and the elucidation of the neuropathology of stroke, autism, and many other conditions. The history of the Neurological Unit is best told through consideration of the colorful personalities who formed the faculty and their many contributions to our field. In this course we will focus on the careers of H. Houston Merritt, Tracy Putnam, Derek Denny-Brown, Raymond D. Adams, C. Miller Fisher, Frederick and Erna Gibbs, Paul Yakovlev, Thomas Kemper, Norman Geshwind, Albert Galaburda, Alexandra Adler, and others who shaped the Unit and were shaped by it. This program complements C85: Boston City Hospital: The Cradle of American Neurology Part I, but covers independent topics.
Completion Message: Participants will become familiar with the development of the modern academic neurology training program which combined scientific research with clinical care of patients; achieve a better understanding of the origins and early development of technologies such as EEG and EMG, which remain important tools in neurological practice; and become familiar with classic methods of clinico-anatomic correlation and neuropathology as techniques that established the foundation of neurology as a clinical and scientific discipline.
