         "[Before Phrenology] all we knew about the brain was, how  to slice it ..."

                                                                                        - R Chenevix                      

      The theory of phrenology was developed by Joseph Gall in 1796 who postulated the brain contained 27 individual organs or areas which dictated character and mental abilities.  The theory gained popularity in the 19th century although is now largely discredited. It  involved the detailed study of the shape and size of the cranium.  Phrenologists would assess a patient's skull feeling for bumps and indentations. 

      Fortunately modern neuroscience has advanced our understanding of the brain.  Imbalances in certain neurotransmitters (brain chemicals) are believed to be involved in many mental disorders, imbalances which modern pharmacological agents, including anti-depressants and anti-psychotics, seek to address.
