This lecture was part of a series of 20 lectures for colleagues and medical practitioners, and the 13th was entitled ‘Spinal cord and the brain’. In that lecture, Virchow made public his earlier thoughts [1] on the brain connective tissue, the ‘nervenkitt’ or nerve-cement, which he termed… CONTINUE READING
