Theodor Hermann Meynert (1833-1892), a German-Austrian neuropathologist and anatomist, is known as one of the founders of the Brain Psychiatry. He was the most arduous defender of the bridge between psychological and neurophysiological events, both dependent on specific neuroanatomical structures. Juliano Moreira (1873-1933), the founder of the Brazilian scientific psychiatry, is also mentioned, as well as the influence he received from the German psychiatry, mainly Emil Kraepelin's (1856-1926). Finally, the rapprochement of Psychiatry and Neurology is considered mostly in common areas as Neuropsychiatry.
