Phrenology is a pseudomedicine primarily focused on measurements of the human skull, based on the concept that the brain is the organ of the mind.

The foremost American phrenologists, the Fowler brothers, began reading heads in New York in the 1840s. Their publishing industry churned out vast quantities of phrenological periodicals, pamphlets and books.
