This chapter begins with the historical development of comparative neuropsychology. George Ettlinger was one of the few who actively combined human and animal research, and he did so consistently throughout his scientific career. He thus embodied the biological study of brain and behaviour with a commitment matched by few others. In this volume, an attempt has been made to assemble authoritative essays by current experts in a number of the areas that interested George Ettlinger during his career, though because of the sheer breadth of those interests, this aim has not been wholly achieved. His earliest concerns, relating to the nature of visual agnosia and the brain systems underlying visual recognition, are addressed in subsequent chapters.

Keywords:   comparative neuropsychology, George Ettlinger, animal research, visual agnosia, brain systems, visual recognition
