About Jean-Martin Charcot

French doctor Jean-Martin Charcot (1825-1893) is widely considered the founder of modern neurology. Through his emphasis on clinical documentation of diagnoses, he was the first to recognize ALS as a distinct neurological disease. In his honor, many around the world still refer to it as "Charcot's Disease."
