Bernhard von Gudden (1824-1886). 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.
