Konrad Akert, 1919-, neurosurgeon. Moved to the US from Zurich in 1951, where he taught at Johns Hopkins and the University of Wisconsin. While at Wisconsin he played an important part in guiding the university's important collection of mammalian brains - one of the major such collections in the world. In 1961 he returned to Zurich, where he oversaw the establishment of the Institute for Brain Research at the Federal Institute of Technology.
