Caption: Jean-Martin Charcot (1825-1893) was a French neurologist who is considered to be the founder of modern neurology. He qualified as a doctor in 1853, and by 1860 (upper left: age 35) he had the title professeur agrege. By 1863 (upper right: age 38) he was a senior physician at the Salpetriere hospital, Paris, founding its famous neurological clinic (1882). From 1866 (centre left: age 41) he gave annual lectures on neurological diseases.
