Gage's personality was changed dramatically after the accident.
. In those years, neurology was in its infancy.
Gage holds a prominent place at the cornerstone of neurological history and is “a fixture in neurological textbooks” (Larner and Leach 2002).
His accident still causes astonishment and curiosity and can be considered as the case that most influenced and contributed to the nineteenth century's neuropsychiatric discussion on the mind-brain relationship and brain topography.
