French neurologist and parapsychological investigator.
Grasset was involved in every aspect of internal medicine, but his primary interest concerned diseases of the nervous system. His name is associated with the "Grasset law", a condition where a patient with hemiparesis lying on his back can raise either leg separately, but is unable to raise both legs together. This phenomenon is explained in his 1899 treatise, Diagnostic des maladies de la moëlle.
He conducted studies in the field of psychiatry, publishing the book Demi-fous et Demi-responsables (Semi-Insane and the Semi-Responsible) in 1907, and also researched the paranormal, publishing works with titles such as Le spiritisme devant la science (1904) and L’occultisme hier et aujourd'hui (1907).
He died on 7 July 1918.
