This small monograph was undertaken to check the findings of another author regarding a supposed relationship between patients' performances before and after insulin and metrazol shock therapy. The sorting tests were purely psychologic with a statistical analysis. The tests used were the Weigl Color Form, the Vigotsky and the BRL sorting. One hundred and fourteen patients were studied. The conclusions were that the sorting tests showed the existence of a definite relationship between patients' performances before and after shock therapy. There is a good bibliography. This publication is recommended to all psychologists.
