Abstract

Carl Wernicke [1848-1905] gave the first description of sensory aphasia [1874] and of ophthalmoplegic encephalopathy [1881]. In addition, his notion of ‘Sejunction’ [1894] foreshadowed Bleuler's ‘schizophrenia [1908], and he may be justly said to have been the first successful organic neuropsychiatrist.
