Today is the 127th birthday of Dr. Wilder Penfield and it is celebrated with a Google Doodle.

He and a colleague, Dr. Herbert Jasper developed a new neurological procedure for eliminating epileptic seizures in more than half of the patients treated.  It became known as the "Montreal Procedure," and led to mapping the brain's sensory areas.

You may find the Doodle here as well as read about the Montreal Procedure and also view a short film of the procedure.
