Some artists attempted to record ailments with scientific accuracy, whereas others were more concerned with artistic expression than medical precision. Dr. Thaler will explore how neurological disorders were understood (or misunderstood) over the centuries and across the western world. Whether a relief sculpture of an ancient Egyptian priest, or an iconic fresco by Michelangelo, or letters written by President John Adams, each piece illustrates a different disorder and brings to life one aspect of the history of neurology.
