This volume contains a series of papers which have appeared during the last few years in various journals, mostly British. One article has appeared in the Archives of Neurology and Psychiatry. They are therefore familiar to neurologists. The subjects are as follows: The Epilepsies; Epileptic Variants; Inhibitory Epilepsy; The Psychical Components of Temporal (Uncinate) Epilepsy; The Narcolepsies; The Old Motor System and the New; Disorders of Motility and Muscle Tone —The Voluntary Motor System in Striatal Disease; Disorders of Muscle Tone in Striatal Disease; Involuntary Movements and Their Pathogenesis: Chorea and Athetosis; Involuntary Movements and Their Pathogenesis: Tremor; General Survey of Striatal Motor Function; Pathological Laughing and Crying; Dysaethesiae and Their Neural Correlates, and The Argyll Robertson Pupil. The author has brought these subjects up to date, that is, he has added a consideration of the literature but in no way has modified his original point of view.
