Excerpt

Charles Bland Radcliffe (Fig. 1) was one of the earliest physicians to be appointed to the National Hospital for the Paralysed and Epileptic at Queen Square, London (now the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery, part of University College London Hospitals). His contributions encompassed not only clinical neurology but also the physiology of nerve and muscle albeit with a philosophical, even metaphysical, emphasis.
