Sample text

The first major study by a neurologist, Edward Weinstein (1981), examined key moments in Wilson’s life when his behavior became more erratic and his decisions increasingly stubborn. At such moments Weinstein inferred from the documentary evidence that Wilson’s arteriosclerosis worsened; this, in turn, heightened his psycho-physiological responses, making him uncharacteristically obstinate, limiting his flexibility as a thinker and political leader, and further undermined his health (Weinstein 1981).
