Phrenology is the study of the natural language of the mental organs situated in various parts of the brain. Moral and intellectual qualities were supposedly ascertainable from a study of the external configuration of the skull. Begun by Dr Franz Joseph Gall (1758-1828) in Vienna and elaborated to extreme length by his followers, phrenology was valuable in demonstrating for the first time that different regions of the brain might serve specific purposes, and from it developed the seminal concept of cerebral localisation.
