Dr. Hill provides a brief but clear, readable and authentic summary of what is now known concerning chemical and physical changes in nervous tissues induced by activity in the nerve cells and their processes. The monograph, being a lecture before British chemists, is primarily directed to laymen in biology, including chemists; but so many new and important facts in the field of nervous physiology have been established in the last few years that most physicians who graduated more than ten years ago can read it with profit.
