Franz Joseph Gall () was always a controversial figure, as was his doctrine, later called phrenology. Although often portrayed as a discredited buffoon, who believed he could assess a person's strengths and weaknesses by measuring cranial bumps, he was, in fact, a serious physician-scientist, who strove to answer timely questions about the mind, brain, and by: 7.

Franz Joseph Gall, the inventor of phrenology. Initially known as cranioscopy, phrenology was the brainchild of Franz Joseph Gall, a Viennese physician.

The pseudoscience of phrenology arose from the observations and intuitions of Franz Joseph Gall (–) and his disciple Johann Gaspar Spurzheim (–). Gall believed that mental functions are localized in discrete parts of the brain, which he called organs.

Franz Joseph Gall (–) is best remembered for his belief that bumps on the skull reflect the growth of small, underlying brain areas, though among some historians, more positively for introducing the concept of cortical localization of function. All but one of Gall’s 27 settled-upon cortical faculties involved the cerebral cortex, the exception being his most primitive faculty.

Gall and the birth of modern Phrenology The real scientific Phrenology, which established a direct link between the morphology of the skull and the human character, was discovered by the Austrian physician Franz Joseph GALL ().

His development of the pseudoscience of craniology, later known as phrenology, has long been abandoned as a “science”, but played an important role as a precursor to modern doctrines of brain localizations. Using this method, Gall was able to contribute greatly to neuroanatomic research.
