Paul Yakovlev remembered: an interview with Maurice Victor. Interviewed by Robert Laureno.Can J Neurol Sci. 2009 May; 36(3):311-4.CJ
Maurice Victor, the great Canadian neurologist, was an expert on the neurology of alcoholism including the Wernicke-Korsakoff syndrome. In Boston, Massachusetts he encountered the leading neuroanatomist, Paul Yakovlev, an immigrant from Russia. Together Victor and Yakovlev collaborated on translating the work of S.S. Korsakoff from Russian to English. This interview of Victor about Yakovlev is informative about both of these great figures in North American Neurology.
