This article appeared in the Zeitschrift für die gesamte Neurologic und Psychiatrie and is now published in a small monograph. A new method for studying the gray masses within the substance of the brain and in the mesencephalon is given. It seeks to correct the old method of trying to learn the anatomic relations by piecing together cross-section after cross-section. It differs in no great essential from the method employed by Meyer and Hausman in the general study of the brain by reconstructing it in model form. The method described in this little pamphlet is valuable for teachers of anatomy for graduate students. It is obviously too complicated for undergraduate teaching.
