CHARLES EDOUARD BROWN-SEQUARD (1817 – 1894) was a Mauritian [East Africa] physiologist and neurologist who, in 1850, became the first to describe what is now called Brown-Sequard syndrome. He was born at Port Louis, Mauritius, to an American father and a French mother. He attended the Royal College in Mauritius and graduated in medicine at Paris in 1846. In 1852, he went to the United States and was appointed to the faculty of the Medical College of Virginia, where he conducted experiments in the basement of the Egyptian Building. [Research included]
