Under specific consideration of the theoretical approaches and practical research influences of “interdisciplinarity” in neuroscientific research, this presentation addresses a time period and a subject of investigation that has only marginally been dealt with in the history of medicine and neurosciences: the influences and the context of the creation of early centres of neuroscientific research at the beginning of the 20th century.

Dr. Frank W. Stahnisch is a historian of medicine and neuroscience at the University of Calgary in Alberta, where he holds the endowed Alberta Medical Foundation/Hannah Professorship in the History of Medicine and Health Care. He is the holder of the Mary Louise Nickerson Fellowship in Neuro History.
