To the Editor:
The final appropriation for fiscal year 1964 for the Institute of Neurological Diseases and Blindness in the bill signed into law by the President is $87,675,000. This is an increase of $4,269,000 over fiscal year 1963.The increase will go largely to extramural research and training. Exactly what fields in the neurological area and the areas of the sensory diseases will benefit from the additional funds is hard to tell in advance. The Neurological Council will make these decisions when it meets and there is no way of knowing in advance what projects will get its approval. However, the reports of the appropriations committees of the House of Representatives and the Senate when the bill was passed by the two branches of Congress indicate what they had in mind when they provided the additional money. The Institute is under obligation to use the recommendations in these reports
