Caption: William Cullen (1710-1790), Scottish physician and chemist. Cullen emphasised the importance of the nervous system in illness and invented the phrase 'neurosis' to describe a group of nervous diseases. In 1747 he began teaching chemistry at Glasgow and in 1755 was offered a professorship in Medicine. His teaching at both Glasgow and Edinburgh was highly influential, with his pupils including the chemist Joseph Black and the anatomist William Hunter.
