Joseph Babinski is best known for the 'Babinski Reflex' that all residents learn and nearly all neurologists, ER physicians and primary care physicians use at least once a day while seeing patients. The Babinski reflex is ascertained when a blunt instrument is run along the underside of the foot from heal to toe. When the toe curls under or does nothing, this is a good sign. When the big toe flexes upward and the other toes spread, this is bad and may indicate upper motor neuron damage to the spinal cord or brain disease.But Babinski contributed more to neurology than just a 'simple reflex test' and this book Joseph Babinski: A Biography provides a new look at his work, avoiding the temptation to join the ranks of his unconditional admirers and detractors. The authors stick to the facts of Babinski's life, tracing the sources in forgotten archives and the extensive library collections and, hopefully, exploring territory behind and beyond the traditional records. Above all nothing will be presented as true that cannot be proven with supporting documents
