The fifth revised, enlarged edition of this standard text has been rewritten to a considerable extent. The chapter on general neurophysiology is entirely new, as are sections on emotional reactions in relation to the nervous system and the parts on functional localization in the cerebral cortex. The book is a model for present trends in medical education and is one of the best examples of the successful effort to orient students and practitioners in anatomy, physiology, and pathology concurrently. It thus avoids the pedagogic error of separation of the foundation of clinical neurology and psychiatry.
