Samuel Thomas Soemmerring (1755-1830): The Naming of Cranial Nerves.
Eur Neurol. 2017; 77(5-6):303-306.EN

Abstract

Samuel Thomas Soemmerring was a Prussian polymathic doctor with remarkable achievements in anatomy, draftsmanship and inventions. His naming of 12 pairs of cranial nerves in his graduation thesis is of particular importance. He also gave original descriptions of the macula, sensory pathways and of the substantia nigra. His non-medical contributions were diverse and included criticism of the guillotine, invention of a telegraphic system, and discoveries in palaeontology.
