In this experimental and clinical study of the physiology and pathology of the pupillary movements the authors consider in great detail various factors of interest not only to the ophthalmologist but also to the neurologist. Their methods of studying these pupillary reflexes are outlined in great detail. There are three general subheadings: (1) a study of the normal physiology of the pupil and its normal psychologically controlled reactions; (2) a study of the pathology of the pupillary movements on a basis of psychopathology, and accompanying studies, and the control of the pupillary movements, and (3) the results and conclusions from both the previous subheadings.

Section 1 is subdivided into various allied factors. Under the study of the light reaction, the authors consider the time, the source, the maturity and the duration of the light reactions. They form or classify various types of these as to maximum contraction, minimum contraction and
