NINDS at 50 by Lewis P. Rowland
Book DescriptionWriting the history of an institution whose influence has been as deep and wide as the NINDS was not an easy assignment. The author of this history of the NINDS not only had to research and write about five decades of institutional change and progress, but also had to encompass within that story the incredible advances that have occurred in neuroscience and neurology over the past 50 years. Lewis P. Bud Rowland, M.D., was willing to tackle the task and his worthy accomplishment follows in the pages of this text...Dr. Rowland s career has spanned both clinical and academic neurology. It has given him an advantageous place from which to view the course of neuroscience over a lifetime devoted to unraveling the mysteries and mechanisms of neurological disorders. Within this book you will find the stories of some of the extraordinary individuals, who - either as intramural researchers, administrative directors, or extramural grantees - encouraged exploration or made discoveries themselves that permanently changed how we understand the workings of the brain. You will also find evidence for the continuous emphasis of moving basic science to clinical application - from bench to bedside. From the Foreword by Audrey S. Penn, M.D. NINDS has been one of the most powerful motors that pulled and pushed the rise of modern neuroscience. Its history and the history of neurology and neuroscience are essentially one. Well written, and lavishly accompanied by photographs that span the last half-century, this book will be a welcome addition to the library of everyone in brain research and the clinical neurosciences.
