Biography of Karl Samuel Andersch
Karl Samuel Andersch Andersch was the son of a farmer. A skilled anatomist of whom little is known. He studied in Göttingen as one of Victor Albrecht von Haller's (1708-1777) best pupils; he was probably conferred doctor of medicine in this town and died there in 1777, after having fallen into melancholy in 1775. He is remembered as the discoverer of the Ganglion petrosum of the glossopharynx, and as author of a commendable monograph on the anatomy of the nervous system.
