Dr Charles-Édouard Brown-Séquard
Birth: Apr. 8, 1817
Death: Apr. 2, 1894
City of Paris
Île-de-France, France

Physiologist and neurologist. Also known as Charles Edward, he is noted as the first scientist to work out the physiology of the spinal cord and was one of the first scientists to postulate the existence of hormones. He graduated from the College of France in Paris (1846) and joined the faculties of the Medical College of Virginia (1852), the National Hospital for the Paralysed and Epileptic in London (1859), Havard Medical School (1864) and the École de Médecine in Paris (1869). He returned to the College of France in 1878 as professor of experimental medicine. His experimental studies of the nervous system resulted in the identification of Brown-Séquard syndrome, the loss of sensation and motor function. (bio by: Samuel Taylor Geer)
