Abstract

In the middle eighteenth century Emanuel Swedenborg developed and described a sophisticated and unique model of brain and body function. While Swedenborg referenced many anatomic works of his day, his paradigm of the brain and body was unique and comprehensive. This involved much of his work during his scientific, philosophic period. One of the last major writings of this era was his work later published as The Brain, written in 1743–1744.
