Nothnagel studied under Ludwig Traube (1818–1876) and Rudolf Virchow (1821–1902) at the University of Berlin. From 1865 to 1868 he was an assistant to Ernst Viktor von Leyden (1832–1910). From 1882 until his death in 1905, he was a professor at the university clinic in Vienna. One of his better known students was Constantin von Economo (1876–1931). In 1879 he became a member of the Deutsche Akademie der Naturforscher Leopoldina. In collaboration with other physicians, Nothnagel published Handbuch der speziellen Pathologie und Therapie.

In 1876 he described the irregular pulse associated with atrial fibrillation. At the time he referred to this discovery as "delirium cordis". The eponymous "Nothnagel's syndrome" is named after him. Authentic CdV in fine condition.
