Angelo Mosso’s Circulation of Blood in the Human Brain 1 Tra Edition

[amazon template=iframe image2&asin=0199358982]

“How Antonio Mosso, an almost forgotten contributor to neuroimaging, was able to image brain activity without computers or MRI or any of the historical progression leading to modern methods beautifully traced in this volume, but instead with a simple recording device of his own design, will be extremely valuable to readers interested in how brain activity supports the mind. The editors are to be congratulated for bringing this important story to the English reading world.”–Michael I. Posner, PhD, Professor Emeritus, Psychology , University of Oregon, Eugene, OR 

“This pioneering investigation is at last available in English thanks to the masterful edition of Mosso’s book by Gordon M. Shepherd and Marcus E. Raichle. This reading will be certainly inspiring for neuroscientists, psychologists and historians of science.” —Paolo Mazzarello, MD, PhD, Professor of History of Medicine, University of Pavia, Pavia, Italy
“Science is a conversation that spans centuries. In his Critical Historical Introduction, Mosso summarizes the contributions of his conceptual predecessors going back to Galen. In their Introduction, Raichle and Shepherd recount the conversation from Mosso to the present day. Jointly, a thoroughly scholarly, highly-entertaining account of the evolution of functional neuroimaging.” —Peter T. Fox, M.D., Director, Research Imaging Institute, Malcolm Jones Professor of Radiology, Professor of Radiology, Neurology, Psychiatry, and Physiology, University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio, CA
“This unique work stands alone in terms of value and placing Mosso in historical perspective as the inventor of the plethysmograph and as a researcher who measured the relationship between emotion and brain activity.” —Doody’s Health Sciences Book Review
Featured in the Milan Daily “Il Sole 24 ore”.
“This fascinating manuscript illuminates the thought process of a brilliant scientist and forerunner of modern neuroscience. In rescuing Mosso from oblivion, Fabbri, Raichle and Shepherd have given historians, students and neuroscientists a valuable new resource to fill gaps in the narrative that modern neuroscience was built upon. Moreover, the works of Mosso give us a new perspective on age old questions of the mind and perhaps pause to appreciate the new age of wonder we live in and to attack these questions with renewed vigor and greater humility.” —Studies in History and Philosophy of Biological and Biomedical Sciences
