Garrison: “description of the brain, nerves and muscles. Boerhaave following Willis, distinguished between spirits, produced by the brain, which are called animal, and those produced by the cerebellum, which are called vital. In his writings Boerhaave describes an unusual case which in many ways was a walking, experimental preparation. Boerhaave relates that a beggar in Paris was using his calvarium, which had been removed from his skull, to collect money. Boerhaave, considered the leading physician of his age, revived the Hippocratic method of envisaging, clinical problems. A great bedside teacher, Boerhaave taught many of the clinicians who were to become the Eighteenth Century founders of clinical medicine and neurology. Van Swieten (1754) particularly elucidates Boerhaave's clinical neurological descriptions.”  Esemplare appartenuto al medico piemontese Giuseppe Valentino Brignoni, attivo nella seconda metà del XVIII secolo.
