This is an outstanding monograph describing in detail the structure, functions, and particularly the symptomatology of lesions of the parietal lobe. It has been prepared by one of the world's outstanding neurologists and is based not only on the international literature on the subject but also on the author's extensive experience. The first two chapters are concerned with the anatomy of the parietal lobe and experimental physiological observations. The remainder of the monograph is concerned with various aspects of parietal symptomatology. The book is well illustrated and has an extensive bibliography and an index. For years to come, this may well be the classical reference work on the parietal lobes. Photographs of 10 outstanding neurologists who have been interested in the parietal lobes are included.
