BERNHEIMER, by experimental investigations on monkeys, confirmed his views, already published by Bergmann in monograph form, on the region of the oculo-motor nuclei in man. He demonstrated a series of preparations stained by Nissl's method, which show that the intrinsic muscles of the eye are supplied from what he has called the accessory nucleus of the oculomotor, the fibres crossing. The ciliary ganglion is not to be regarded as the primary centre for pupillay reaction.
