This textbook is written primarily for the medical student so that he can follow daily assignments in class work. The description of the various conditions are clearly and briefly done. The reading of the text is unusually easy. There are twenty-four chapters, starting with diseases of the spinal nerves. Then there follow diseases of the peripheral nerves, spinal cord, cranial nerves, brain stem, cerebellum, thalamus and vegetative nervous system. Inflammations, intoxications, tumors, epilepsy, migraine, multiple sclerosis, trauma, diseases of the muscles follow. Finally there are chapters on mental deficiency, diseases of bone affecting the nervous system, avitaminosis, electroencephalography, psychoneuroses and addiction. Vitamins and avitaminosis are discussed in a sober way. Electroencephalography is like-wise properly evaluated. This is a good textbook and is recommended to the medical student.
