9780199383832: Brain Renaissance: From Vesalius to Modern Neuroscience

Brain Renaissance: From Vesalius to Modern Neuroscience is published on the 500th anniversary of the birth and the 450th anniversary of the death of Vesalius. The authors translated those Latin chapters of the Fabrica dedicated to the brain, a milestone in the history of neuroscience. Many chapters are accompanied by a commentary tracking the discoveries that paved the way to our modern understanding of the brain - from the pineal gland that regulates sleep, the fornix and mammillary bodies for memory, the colliculi for auditory and visual perception, and the cerebellum for motor control, to the corpus callosum for interhemispheric cross-talk, the neural correlates of senses, and the methods for dissections. The chapters constitute a primer for those interested in the brain and history of neuroscience. The translation, written with modern anatomical terminology in mind, provides direct access to Vesalius' original work on the brain. Those interested in reading the words of the Renaissance master will find the book an invaluable addition to their Vesalian collection.

Brain Renaissance pays a tribute to the work of the pioneers of neuroscience and to the lives of those with brain disorders, through whose suffering most discoveries are made. It's an unforgettable journey inspired by the work of the great anatomist, whose words still resonate today.

Review:

"In Brain Renaissance, neuroscientists Marco Catani and Stefano Sandrone present a translation from the Latin of the Fabrica's last volume, which focuses on the brain. Through it we can appreciate Vesalius's extraordinary attention to detail, and his willingness to believe his eyes, even when what he saw contradicted established knowledge." Nature

"Marco Catani and Stefano Sandrone rehearse the life and labors of Andreas Vesalius and his influence on contemporary neuroscience; in offering the modern reader a new and lively translation of De humani corporis fabrica libri septi (1543), Book 7, the authors make an outstanding contribution to scholarship and the history of neuroscience that is much to be admired. --Professor Alastair Compston, Department of Clinical Neurosciences, University Neurology, Cambridge, UK

"What a rich celebration of Andreas Vesalius' birth half a millennium ago! Vesalius, the father of modern anatomy, and the history of neuroanatomy ever since the appearance of his stunning atlas of human anatomy in 1543, come to life in this highly readable and richly illustrated volume, which also contains the authors' translation of Vesalius' text." --Professor Willem J. M. Levelt, Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics, Nijmegen, The Netherlands

"From Vesalius, Renaissance pioneer of human dissection, to contemporary MRI pictures of the connectome, this gorgeously illustrated book retraces five centuries of efforts to map the human brain. This book is a must-read for anyone interested in the history of neuroscience and its modern-day developments." --Professor Stainslas DeHaene, Collège de France, Paris, France

"This is a delightfully readable book. The authors combine the colorful biography of Vesalius with a lucid translation of his revolutionary anatomical discoveries. The lavishly illustrated volume also offers keen insights into the history of neuroscience as it was being transformed by Vesalius and his contemporaries from a philosophical into an empirical field of inquiry." --Professor Marsel Mesulam, MD, Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine, Chicago, IL

"Brain Renaissance epitomizes Calvino's points on why we should read classics. The authors make Vesalius reaching out to us from the pages of this captivating volume like a clued-up old friend, conversing unflappably on buttocks of the brain and the seat of the soul. As a result, we feel more erudite, and we could smugly assert that we have 're-read' such a great classic." --Professor Sergio Della Sala, Human Cognitive Neuroscience, University of Edinburgh, UK
