Abstract: Joseph Dejerine passed away on 28 February 1917 in the midst of a world at war. One hundred years later we celebrate the legacy of this pioneer in neuroscience. In 1895, Joseph Jules Dejerine published the first volume of the seminal work, Anatomie des centres nerveux; volume 2 was published in 1901. In a major section of this tome (vol. 1 pp. 749–80), Joseph Dejerine and his wife and long-term collaborator, Augusta Dejerine-Klumpke, produced a treatise on the white matter pathways of the brain, composed of anatomical descriptions of meticulous detail and beautiful illustration (drawn by H. Gillet) that reflected a combination of the most advanced methodologies of the day and a review of leading neuroscientific research. We have selected and focused this specific output (which is provided for the first time as an English translation in the Supplementary material) from the many that the Dejerines published because its ideas and findings continue to be of relevance to modern neuroscience researchers today; especially those with an interest in connectional anatomy.
