Prepared originally as a text-book for medical students, this work is now in every way worthy of a place in the library of the practitioner for general reference and study. The chapter on the embryology of the brain and cord is clearly written and well illustrated. An extensive chapter on "Tracing of Impulses" takes up the various motor and sensory paths in the nervous system. Aside from this, the physiology of the subject is considered with the anatomy. The illustrations comprise diagrams, semidiagramatic drawings, and photographs of cross-sections of cord, medulla, etc. Some are from other books, but many are original.
