Arnold Pick (20 July 1851 – 4 April 1924) was a Jewish Czech psychiatrist. He is known for identifying the clinical syndrome of Pick's disease and the Pick bodies that are characteristic of the disorder. He was the first to name reduplicative paramnesia. He was the second to use the term dementia praecox (in 1891).[1] Pick trained in Berlin with Carl Friedrich Otto Westphal and later worked at the infamous asylum of Wehnen.[2] Pick headed the Prague neuropathological school and one of the school's members was Oskar Fischer.[3] This school was one of the two neuropathological schools (the other one was in Munich where Alois Alzheimer worked) in Europe at the time that framed Alzheimer disease through empirical discoveries.[4]
