Serendip's forums sometimes get longer than what can conveniently be accessed and displayed. They are, at the same time, in their entirety an important part of what Serendip has become at any given time (and, of course, particular contributions may well be of lasting significance). To try and balance needs for easy display and those of continuous and permanent record, only this year's forum comments are displayed on this page with earlier comments being preserved elsewhere.

The paper on "Mind, Brain, and Adaptation: the Localization of Cerebral Function" is well written and interesting.
I found it as I looked arround for information on Flourens. A danish text-book writer quoted (in 1865) Flourens for some work on animal reaction to meningeal hemorrhage. I was looking for a list of Flourensī papers. Can you give me information on where to find such a list.
Best regards

Although I don't know whether it is definitive, there is a Flourens bibliography in the Catalogue of Scientific Papers (1800-1863) of the Royal Society of London, Volume 2, pp. 642-646. London: Clay, 1868.

Subject: May I download it?

Comments:
I'm interested in the history of psychology, so "Mind and Body" could be a very important reference for my further study in psychology. May I download and keep it as a convenient reference? If yes,is there easier way to download the whole article, rather than cut and paste every page? Thanks for helps.

I remember reading once about Paul Broca's bid to become a member of the French Academy based on his discovery of the motor speech control area. Arguing against his admission was Gratiolet who cited the case of a woman who was hit in the right side of her head by her husband with a candlestick. After she was hit and before she died, she cursed her husband. Gratiolet claimed that if motor speech was controlled by the left, she couldn't have spoken. Do you know where I might be able to re-locate this text" ? Thanks
