This book is meant to be a syllabus for study before and after seeing ten teaching motion pictures which show the motor disorders of patients. With the addition of a large number of pictures, drawings and illustrations, it is a small atlas.

For the book, the motor disorders and the roentgenograms are divided into ten groups, as follows: abnormal involuntary movements, disorders of gait, disorders of coordination, muscle status, reflexes, skilled acts, oculomotor disorders, facial palsy, disorders of the vestibular system, and disorders of the motor trigeminal, spinal accessory and hypoglossal nerves. Each of these roentgenograms may be purchased separately.

This is a valuable book both with and without the roentgenograms.
