This publication throws a penetrating mild at the lifestyles and paintings of the physiologist grew to become neurologist G.G.J. Rademaker opposed to the heritage of flourishing scientific examine within the Netherlands of the early 20th century. It charts the increase and fall of the department of experimental neurophysiology of which Rademaker used to be a grasp, which used to be transmitted from Charles Sherrington in England to Rudolf Magnus at Utrecht after which to Rademaker, Magnus's such a lot gifted student. achieving its apogee within the Twenties and Nineteen Thirties, it was once changed after international battle II by means of different much less invasive methods.
