Klüver Heinrich (1897-1979)
American neurologist and psychologist. For many years Klüver served as professor of psychology of the University of Chicago. As an editor, he was associated with several journals of psychology. In addition to having numerous articles to his credit, he was the author of book-length monographs including Mescal (1928) and Mescal and Mechanisms of Hallucinations (1966). In 1937 he and P. C. Bucy first described the syndrome that bears their names in an article on the effects of bilateral temporal lobectomy in rhesus monkeys. Klüver is also credited with developing a technique for staining nervous-system tissue and the discovery of free porphyrins in the central nervous system.
