The neurologists

Stephen T. Casper

Manchester University Press

Neurology's twin programme – its scientific research and clinical practice – never found an easy alliance. The clinical work, the research, and the bureaucratic features and administrative needs of both, often appeared disjointed. Indeed, by the 1950s, the neurologists experienced real struggles with both the organisation of medicine and the opportunities for research. To the generation of neurologists who had made their names in the interwar period and were reaching retirement age, younger generations appeared somewhat adrift and perhaps even resentful. To most neurologists in the 1950s, the field appeared to be in decline, a professional discourse that was perhaps exaggerated by similar complaints in North America. The reality, however, was more complicated.
