Friedrich Albrecht Erlenmeyer (9 March 1849 - 7 July 1926) was a German physician and psychiatrist born in Bendorf bei Koblenz. He was the son of psychiatrist Adolph Albrecht Erlenmeyer (1822-1877).
He studied medicine at the Universities of Bonn, Halle and Würzburg and Greifswald, earning his doctorate in 1872 at Greifswald with a dissertation titled Uber das cicatricielle Neurom. Afterwards he became directing physician at his father's asylum for Gemüts- und Nervenkranke at Bendorf.
He published a large number of writings in the fields of neurology and psychiatry, which included articles in foreign publications such as Tuke's "Dictionary of Psychological Medicine", as well as in German works such as Penzoldt-Stintzing's Handbuch der speciellen Therapie innerer Krankheiten.
In 1878 he founded the neurological/psychiatric journal Centralblatt für Nervenheilkunde, Psychiatrie und gerichtliche Psychopathologie. In 1895 with William Thierry Preyer (1841-1897) and Wilhelm Langenbruch (1860-1932), he founded Die Handschrift, Blatter fur wissenschaftliche Schriftkunde und Graphologie, a scientific journal dealing with palaeography and graphology.
