The BSLS have recently published a review of Brain Renaissance, authored by the founder of the Natbrainlab, Prof Marco Catani, and Stefano Sandrone.
They take as their starting point the famous physician Andreas Vesalius, and his publication De Humani Corporis Fabrica (1543). Divided into three parts, the book focuses on the extraordinary life of one of the most influential doctors in medicine, Vesalius. The book gives a translation of his writings on the brain with commentary by the authors, followed by a final chapter with an overview of the most recent developments in neuroscience. Readers will learn about Vesalius´s remarkable dissections and the breakthrough in the development of medicine represented by his Fabrica.
Copies of the book are available on Amazon.
