Caption: Bernhard von Gudden (1824-1886). 1885 engraving of the German microanatomist and psychiatrist Johann Bernhard Aloys von Gudden. Gudden made many contributions in the field of neuroanatomy, especially in his work of mapping and describing the paths, connections, origins/termini and neuroanatomical centres of cranial and optic nerve networks. The commissural fibres of the optic tract are called the commissure of Gudden in his honour, and he developed a specialised microtome for sectioning the brain for pathological study. He advocated a no-restraint policy, humane treatment of the mentally ill, communal social interaction amongst patients, and a well-trained medical staff.
