On Becoming an Authority

On Becoming an Authority Abstract The time spent in contemplation during residency years being what it is, I venture the surmise that few of our residents have considered the framed bit from Chaucer's Parlement of Foules, gracing a shelf in the neurology library for lo these many years.

Abstract

Abstract The time spent in contemplation during residency years being what it is, I venture the surmise that few of our residents have considered the framed bit from Chaucer's Parlement of Foules, gracing a shelf in the neurology library for lo these many years. This excerpt is a fit text for my slight homily this evening. It runs as follows: For out of olde feldes, as men seith, Cometh all this newe corn from yere to yere; And out of olde bokes, in good feith, Cometh all this newe science that men lere. Well over a half-century ago, in preparation for a regular Saturday morning Grand Round in Neurology at the Boston (Mass) City Hospital, the chief, Stanley Cobb, had drawn a dozen mannikins on the large blackboard at the front of the room. Cobb, who was something of an artist, drew visual aids using both hands simultaneously. In addition to References 1. Aring CD, Cobb S. The muscular atrophies and allied disorders . Medicine . 1935;14:77-118.Crossref 2. Aring CD, Fulton JF. Relation of the cerebrum to the cerebellum, II: cerebellar tremor in the monkey and its absence after removal of the principal excitable areas of the cerebral cortex (areas 4 and 6a, upper part), III: accentuation of cerebellar tremor following lesions of the promotor area (area 6a, upper part) .
