Glasbach gestochen worden. - *First Edition of Soemmerings masterly thesis on the origin and accurate classification of twelve cranial nerves, basded on numerous brain dissections. Soemmering believed that the cranial nerves originated from the walls of the ventricles or from the cavities themselves, and that the ventricular fluid was the seat of sensation and nerve impulses were motions in the fluid. In addition to numbering the cranial nerves, Soemmering also described the optical chiasm, the pineal gland and the topography of the cerebral hemispheres. His name is associated with several neural structures, especially the substantia nigra. "Today's recognition of 12 paires of cranial nerves dates from the eigtheenth century and the work of Sömmering." - Brazier; Garrison- McHenry 93-97, reproduction of the title page; Meyer, Historical aspects of cerebral anatomy, num refs.; Cushing S 320; Waller 9049; Hirsch-H.
