Abstract

GALEN'S METHODOLOGICAL APPROACH to medicine anticipated modern rules. His experiments on the spinal cord contributed greatly to our knowledge of this structure by reporting the variegated pattern of neurological impairment after sectioning at different levels. His approach to injuries of the spinal roots and peripheral nerves documents both diagnostic skill and intellectual honesty.
