The man won a Nobel prize, but the article neglects to include any description of the work for which the prize was awarded. --Blainster (talk) 04:54, 13 April 2009 (UTC) He also coined the term "synapse", but that isn't mentioned either. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 23:42, 18 October 2009 (UTC)
argument for greatest physician since Fernel, Galen & Hippocrates
i feel this topic is worthy of discussion.
too few medical students/practitioners understand how sir sherrington was a legend.
i mean, his student made penicillin ffs.
sir sherrington was so focused on the mind body problem that he had to deposit his knowledge in Man on His Nature, given that there were not sufficient technologies to test his hypotheses.
this may go unanswered but i honestly think it's hard to beat sir charles sherrington as the greatest doctor in commonwealth history (the quality of scholars that originated from his students, like hodgkin & huxley, prove it).
