Abstract

Neurobiology was a central concern at the Marine Biological Laboratory (MBL), Woods Hole at the end of the last century, when the director Charles Otis Whitman set up a seminar for discussion of research and general issues in 'neurology', which took place annually from 1896 to 1900 and generated intense interest among MBL researchers. Although the emerging fields within neurobiology underwent changes, neurological concerns continued to play a central role. This article explores the activity at the MBL in the 1890s when the various studies had not yet unified to form the field of neurobiology.
