Two previous volumes of this series have already been reviewed. The present volume, No. 18, covers a diverse field. Practically all of the articles are by French authors with the exception of a few such as that on vertigo which is written by the Swedish neurologists Karl Petrén and Sven Ingvar.

The first of the general headings which comprise this volume consists of Symptomatology of the General Nervous System, under which are discussed coma, apoplexy, headaches, vertigo and sleep disturbances. As only ninety pages are devoted to this part, the discussion is necessarily sketchy. The second division, comprising eighty-seven pages, deals with psychiatry. The third division is on language disturbances, and here there is an excellent discussion on aphasia by Charles Foix and a smaller chapter on dysphasias and dystonia by Henri Meige. The next few divisions treat allied topics, such as motility, tonicity, electrical reactions and disturbance of reflexes.
