Where Do You Start in Studying History of Neuroscience?

I want to build a bibliography of books that would help someone get a good introduction to the history of neuroscience. Single authored volumes are what I'm looking for. Here's what I've got:

  • Finger, The Origins of Neuroscience: A History of Explorations into Brain Function 
  • Finger, Minds behind the brain : a history of the pioneers and their discoveries
  • Clarke and Jacyna, Nineteenth-Century Origins of Neuroscientific Concepts
  • Ochs, A History of Nerve Functions
Other recommendations?
