Recollections About the Neurological Sciences with Emphasis on Neuroendocrinology

  • Joseph C. Hinsey
Part of the Perspectives in Neuroendocrine Research book series (PNR, volume 1)


As I review my investigative career, I find that it has dealt with the anatomy (gross, microscopic, comparative), physiology, embryology, pathology, chemistry, and pharmacology of the nervous sytem as well as neuroendocrinology, which was an outgrowth of other interests in the neurological sciences. Some review of the institutions where I have been and the responsibilities there is indicated.
