French neurologist who was a student of Joseph Jules Dejerine and a colleague of Georges Guillain and Charles Foix. He was a prolific writer on many topics but was particularly interested in aphasia.

A great scholar and enthusiastic bibliophile, Alajouanine had privileged relationships with famous writers during his neurological career. Fyodor Dostoyevsky's biography and works provided him with a penetrating look into the world of epilepsy.

He died on 2 May 1980, aged 89, in Paris. The Laboratoire Théophile-Alajouanine, Centre hospitalier Côte-des-Neiges, Montréal is named after him.
