Thomas Willis’s ‘Cerebri Anatome’ was a landmark work in the history of health science and anatomy. Prior to Willis, there was only one presentation of cerebral anatomy, by Casserius. However, Willis’s was much more exhaustive and discusses his method for removal and dissection of the brain for research purposes. He gives extensive descriptions of the brain stem, cerebellu, and basal ganglia. Willis also provided detailed schemas of the vegal and sympathetic nerves to the viscera and discussed the uses of the parts of the brain along with circulation functions.

 

Many of Willis’s anatomical and cerebral hypotheses are outlined in this work. For instance, Willis hypothesized that the convolutional complexity of the cerebral cortex is associated directly with human intelligence. This book was known to be a part of the personal libraries of Thomas Browne, a renowned scholar of medicine, religion and esoteric sciences.

 

This book includes other research and works by other physicians including Radulphum Bathurst, William Croone, and Nathaniel Highmore. It also features more than 30 engravings depicting cerebral anatomy, nerves, and brain activity.
