"[In] 1959 German neurologist Georg Schaltenbrand, along with Bailey, produced a stereotactic atlas of the human brain that became an instant classic because of the caliber and accuracy of the photographs of the brain. Despite the fact that his later research was not specifically directed at brain tumors, the practical applicability of this work to neurosurgical practice is clear" (Ferguson & Lesniak). "The editors, realizing the great potentialities of stereotaxis in brain surgery, are confronted with the problem of its 'blindness' and its inaccuracies. [. . . ] Since the ventricular system is the chief landmark of orientation, the editors have presented a careful study as to the extent of the normal, as well as the pathologically deformed ventricular system. In order to use the ventriculogram for direct dimensional measurements, they have developed a roentgenographic technique" (Loren W. Avery). Bailey (1892–1973) was an "American neuropathologist, neurosurgeon and psychiatrist" from southern Illinois. He is best remembered for "his collaborative work with Harvey Cushing, and his important work involving the classification of brain tumors, which prior to his research was in state of disarray and confusion. In 1925, Bailey identified a mid-cerebellar glioma that is usually associated with childhood called a medulloblastoma, of which he published an important paper with Cushing titled 'Medulloblastoma Cerebelli.' Also, the two doctors are credited with coining the term 'hemangioblastoma'" (Wikipedia). His "greatest single contribution to neurology" was his book, Tumors of the Glioma Group (Philadelphia: J. B. Lippincott Co., 1925) which "completely revolutionized the understanding and diagnosis of these tumors and still influences neurological and neurosurgical thought" (Bucy 8-9). Schaltenbrand (1894-1979) "was one of the most prodigious and internationally renowned neurologists in post-war Germany. [He] scientifically contributed to the organization and diagnostics of the motor system, to the physiology and pathology of the cerebrospinal fluid system, and to multiple sclerosis" ("Georges Schaltenbrand" 63). He was a student of Alfons Jakob, a renowned neurologist who made significant inroads into mental disease research, and was the first to identify Alper's disease and Creutzfeld-Jakob disease. Due to Schaltenbrand's questionable injection of several mentally handicapped patients with spinal fluid taken from apes with multiple sclerosis, his work is considered typical Nazi medical science.
