The beast in the mosquito : the correspondence of Ronald Ross and Patrick Manson by Ronald Ross( Book )

9 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 105 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The correspondence between Sir Ronald Ross (1857-1932) and Sir Patrick Manson (1844-1922) is rich in both scientific and human terms. It records, in great detail, Ross's research in India between 1895 and 1899, which elucidated the role of mosquitoes in the transmission of malaria, work for which Ross was awarded the 1902 Nobel Prize for Medicine or Physiology. Ross described the mosquito-transmission theory as Manson's 'Grand Induction', and he had returned to India, where he was an officer in the Indian Medical Service, having been primed by Manson. Ross's regular letters to his mentor document the frustrations and false trails as well as the excitement of discovery. Manson in turn acted as a kind of agent in London, publicising his findings, offering advice and seeking to use his influence to secure for Ross the working conditions he so desired. These 173 letters, plus 85 from the two decades after Ross's return to Britain also record the rise and full of a relationship, a
Michael Foster and Thomas Henry Huxley, correspondence, 1865-1895 by Michael Beresford Foster( Book )

4 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The letters in this volume span some thirty years but there are gaps in the correspondence, most notably 1877 and 1883 (although there is one letter dated to 1881 and one to 1882). Foster and Huxley presumably did correspond during this period but we have no knowledge of what happened to the letters. In addition, the letter dating to 1888 appear not to be in either archive: some of these are reproduced in whole or in part in Leonard Huxley's two volume Life and letters of Thomas Henry Huxley and have been added to this volume. In transcribing the letters we have modernised spelling and punctuation, and corrected grammar. Words we have struggled to read or are unsure of have been put in square brackets. Illegible words are indicated as such

This Witness Seminar on the development of brain banks in the UK, chaired by Professor Hugh Perry, included several neuropathologists, neuroscientists, and representatives of individual brain banks and the MRC’s UK Brain Bank Network. Discussions covered the development of early brain collections and the origins of more formal brain banking; the creation, maintenance and work of brain banks dedicated to specific diseases and neurological conditions; and the establishment in 2009 of the MRC’s UK Brain Bank Network to coordinate the provision of brain tissue for medical research. Other debates and reminiscences included much discussion on the ethics of obtaining post-mortem brains and issues about the recruitment of donors, and the public perception of brain banks and research using human brain tissue

3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There are around eight million migraine sufferers in the UK today. This Witness Seminar looked at the last 50 years of research into the diagnosis and treatment of the condition and the changing attitudes of the medical profession towards this debilitating disorder. Chaired by Dr Mark Weatherall, the participants, some of whom were also migraine sufferers, included neurologists and pharmacologists, representatives from patient organizations such as Migraine Action and the Migraine Trust, and GPs and headache nurses. The discussion covered the vascular and neuronal theories of migraine, the early treatment with ergotamine, analgesics and antiemetics, and investigations into the importance of 5-HT. It then moved on to examine the scientific research behind the development of the triptans during the 1980s and impact of their introduction in the early 1990s. More recent treatments, such as the use of Botox (botulinum toxin), were also considered. Other topics included the development of headache classification and diagnostic criteria for migraine; the support for migraine sufferers such as headache clinics, specialist headache nurses, and charities; and the reason why, despite the number of sufferers and its high socio-economic cost, there is often little interest in migraine and research attracts limited funding
