The Association for Research in Nervous and Mental Diseases was conceived more than a year ago and organized during the following months. Its object is indicated by the title, and it is to be national in scope. The present plan is to have one meeting a year, the subject to be discussed and the contributors being chosen by the program committee. The scientific proceedings are conducted by a commission, members of which may ask questions and require an author to defend his thesis. The commission finally assembles, edits, if necessary comments on, the communications, and publishes all in a volume which is sent to every member. The undertaking is a distinct step forward in American neurology.
The present officers are: president, Dr. Walter Timme, New York; vice president, Dr. E. W. Taylor, Boston; secretary-treasurer, Dr. Foster Kennedy, New York; members of the commission, Drs. Walter Timme, Pearce Bailey, Charles L.
