This is a brief presentation of neuroanatomy which the authors propose to limit only to facts which are of physiopathologic significance. In the main the book consists of a brief presentation of standard neuroanatomic facts illustrated by simple but clear line drawings. The book, however, does not represent up to date knowledge and thought in the fields of neuroanatomy and physiology. The position of the spinal pathways subserving the sensations of pain and temperature illustrated in figure 25 is not in agreement with experimental studies or neurosurgical experience. The rubrospinal tract, although of considerable size and importance in dogs and cats, is now known to be of little significance in man. The overemphasis on the rubrospinal tract seen in the discussion of the extrapyramidal pathways on page 35 is carried over into the illustration of the cerebellar connections on page 78 and has resulted on page 126 in a complete
