This sketchy account of the history of French-speaking clinical neuropsychology from 1957 to 2000 first recalls the Salpêtrière school leaded by Alajouanine and his disciples, and second the Ste Anne psychiatric hospital, with on one hand the Chair of Mental and Brain Diseases, and on the other hand a number of research teams gathered around disciples of Dejerine such as Jean Lhermitte. Because of the large scope of this topic, the authors could not elude the need for a bibliographic selection that may seem questionable.
