Franz Joseph Gall - Source

Anatomist, born in Tiefenbrunn, SW Germany. As a physician in Vienna (1785), he evolved a theory in which a person's talents and qualities were traced to particular areas of the brain. His lectures on phrenology were popular, but suppressed in 1802 as being subversive of religion.
