Professor Giles Brindley MD, FRCP, FRS (Fig. 1) is one of Britain's great physiologists. Coming from humble beginnings, Brindley became a world-renowned figure in the research and innovation of visual neuroscience, neural stimulators, and urology, in addition to achieving prowess in musical engineering and athletics. A Fellow of the Royal Society, his contributions to neurosurgery were the invention and production of a multitude of neuroprostheses, including stimulators of the spinal cord to treat chronic pain, and sacral nerve roots for urological and sexual function in spinal cord injury. Many were made in his back bedroom in an era before medical devices became dominated by multinational corporations.
