In addition to its well-known Colloquia, the Ciba Foundation in London also publishes the proceedings of one-day meetings organized around the work of eminent members of its scientific advisory panel, which it calls "Study Groups." This small volume honors the Turkish professor, S. Artunkal, who is also one of the contributors with an article on psychological studies in hyperthyroidism. There are five other papers dealing with various aspects of the influence of the brain on the thyroid or vice versa. G. W.
