Abstract

It begins with a discussion of the motor symptoms, in which there is the usual exposition of the results of lesions of the pyramidal tracts. This is followed by a discussion of lesions of the spinal cord and the cerebellum. The extrapyramidal syndromes comprise about thirty-four pages. The subdivisions are interesting. There is first an explanation of the anatomy and physiology, and then follow discussions of parkinsonism
