Ludwig Edinger (1909)


German anatomist, neurologist and co-founder of the University of Frankfurt, credited with coining the terms "gnosis" and "praxis". These terms were later used in psychological descriptions of agnosia and apraxia. Also, he was the first to describe the ventral and dorsal spinocerebellar tracts and to distinguish the paleocerebellum from the neocerebellum. In 1914 he was appointed the first German professor of neurology.

Edinger died suddenly on 26 January 1918 in Frankfurt of a heart attack.
