"Alberti does, however, tell a fascinating story. Her account of the wider medical changes would be useful and accessible undergraduate reading, while her analysis of the mind-body relationship should be required reading for anyone working on minds, emotions, or bodies. Alberti rightly notes that historians have perpetuated the twentieth-century scientific boundaries between mind and body, meaning 'that the history of neuroscience need not be connected with the history of cardiology'. Alberti's thought-provoking study makes not only a compelling case for scholarly reintegration of the mind and body but also highlights the research riches that it provides."--Journal of British Studies
