PART I. CLINICAL METHODS OF STUDYING THE AUTONOMIC NERVOUS SYSTEM  This work was undertaken in order to determine a method of studying the status of the autonomic system. An adequate, satisfactory method is not at hand. There are, however, rough qualitative observations that indicate that there is, in a high percentage of controls, a range of response in tissues supplied by the autonomic nervous system that can be accepted as a standard. In addition, it is evident from these experiments that under
