According to the intentions of the author this book will enable students to approach nervous diseases, thinking in terms of anatomy, physiology and pathology. The book consists of three parts: part 1 (pp. 3 to 113), a laboratory manual for the study of the central nervous system under normal and pathologic conditions based on Weigert and Marchi preparations; part 2 (pp. 117 to 178), a summary of the anatomy and physiology of the nerve tracts, mainly based on newer methods of investigating the observations found at autopsy in chemical cases; and part 3 (pp. 179 to 329), the more important features of the better known nervous diseases, correlating their symptomatology with anatomic, physiologic and pathologic data.

Pages 333 to 436 contain a great many illustrations, and there is a large diagram showing the chief fiber tracts of the brain, brain stem and spinal cord.
