First Edition. Stilling made a number of important contributions to neurology, introducing the term “vasomotor nerves” in 1840 and performing significant research on the organization of the nervous system, particularly the spinal cord, brainstem and cerebellum. He was one of the first to use serial sections to study the internal structure of the spinal cord under the microscope, collaborating with Joseph Wallach on Untersuchungen über die Textur des Rückenmarks (1842) and publishing the present work on the medulla oblongata the following year. “In this book, there are many transverse section figures from the origin of the 2nd cervical nerve pair up to the pons. Stilling aimed to reveal the difference between the spinal cord and medulla oblongata by presenting in detail the anatomical structures in his figures” (Demircubuk et al.). I.
