Harold Himwich was a neuroscientist long before that word was coined, and before a coherent body of knowledge had developed to justify the existence of a new discipline. His career spanned six decades and as many disciplines: biochemistry, embryology, physiology and pharmacology, and all of these coupled with clinical investigations in medicine and psychiatry. His fertile mind blazed a logical path through and among these fields, tying them together in a way that helped to develop the concept of neuroscience and the dependence of an understanding of normal and abnormal behavior upon all of them.
