This volume contains more than usual of interest to the neuropsychiatrist. L. F. Barker has an hour's excellent talk, clear and reasonable, on the treatment of the psychoneuroses and the milder forms of the major psychoses. Naturally, this lecture is designed for the general practitioner and should be most helpful.
The lecture of C. Judson Herrick on some relationships of the visceral nervous system is more technical, but the fundamentals of structure and function are so lucidly presented that the talk is not only of value to neurologists but may easily be grasped by any doctor or medical student. The much disputed subject of the synapse is clarified, with conclusions that may be drawn from the anatomic findings.
The principles of visceral control are clearly stated, and the partial control of voluntary muscles by way of the sympathetic system is also discussed.
