Notes

The Institute of Neurology Cinefilm Library comprises 97 short, silent, monochrome and colour studies of individual case-histories from the National Hospital for Nervous Diseases selected and compiled by Professor John Marshall, former Professor of Clinical Neurology in the University of London, providing an invaluable visual record of the clinical features of nervous disease. The original films existed as a collection of unedited 16mm films until January 1989 when the Wellcome Trust had the films cleaned, re-edited and copied onto video. The videocopied Cinefilm Library includes 94 of the 97 original films, grouped according to their clinical subject matter into 14 rolls, varying from 20 - 80 minutes in length. Each roll includes one or two major clinical subject-grouping, each of the video tapes features one roll.
