It is the aim of this writer to present the contributions of recognized specialists who have studied brain injury. The relationship between brain injury and education will be stressed in this historical review of the research. This paper will attempt to review the work of many, beginning with the experiments of Itard in 1799. It was not until the 1920's, however, that studies of the effects of brain injury appeared on any large scale. This review will progress from the work of Itard to the present.
