Volume III contains papers reporting the work of the institute for the past two years devoted to the subjects of the symptomatology and therapy of schizophrenia. Particularly interesting is the paper by A. C. Kronfeld, in which the author reviews the extensive historical material regarding the concepts of schizophrenia leading up to its formulation by Kraepelin. The convulsive-irritative methods of therapy are described and at the same time emphasis is laid on the need of physical therapeutic measures such as hydrotherapy and electrotherapy.

Volume IV is devoted principally to the problems of organization of a psychiatric hospital and to the problems of the patient after his discharge from the hospital. No particularly new or interesting views are disclosed. The need for accuracy in statistical studies of therapeutic results is emphasized.
