authors are imminently certified to put in writing in this subject...their first-hand wisdom of the interval in query and of the participants they interview enriches the book's content material considerably.''
--Norman R. Relkin, MD, PhD in NEUROLOGY (April 2001)
''Katzman and Bick display massive interviewing abilities, and their respondents offer remarkably beneficiant and candid fabric. This e-book will as a result fascinate scholars of the historical past of technology, despite their curiosity in Alzheimer's illness. in the event you have such curiosity, it's a infrequent treat.''

An extensive E M study of the inner plexiform layer 28 RT: 2. T H E PIONEERS H e also asked whether the plaques of the normal patient were any different from the plaques in the Alzheimer patient and I told him, perhaps wrongly, that I could not see any differences in the plaques but we had not seen that many plaques in the normals since we didn't do biopsies on normals. Well, in the late 1960s we got some old dogs and some old monkeys. We saw plaques, long before Don Price did, 10 or 15 years before.
So I got in on the ground floor. There w^ere tw^o reasons: (a) I got a promotion and (b) there w^as lots of money around because it \vas a ne^v medical school. The money started fading later but it had a lot of good things going for it. 42 2. T H E P I O N E E R S The teaching was in some ^vays completely crazy and in other Avays very good. One of the things they did do was that unlike at any other medical school in this country, except Oxford and Cambridge, all Nottingham students do a degree first.
All the work they did in paraffin, celloidin, and so on w^as included but the E M w^as not. I'm not sure that even now it's included on the exams. But that meant they didn't want to do this tedious vv^ork for no credit. Anyway, I had to go on training people all the time. But, to get back to the point, I won't go on making excuses but certainly, I was slow. But an3Avay, I was getting very uptight. McMenemey suggested to me (he kne^v that Bob Terry was going to have a sabbatical) that I write Terry and invite him to come.
