The author has done a service to cerebellar knowledge in gathering together the results of the different methods of investigation of the functions of this organ. He has contributed somewhat himself to such knowledge. The subject matter is well presented in about 100 pages. His conclusion is that the function of the cerebellum is by no means definitely known and that more definite knowledge is still to be sought.

In spite of contributions to cerebellar physiology in the references at the end of the book, only few American authors are mentioned. This is inexcusable, for the contributions of Riley, Mussen, Pollock and Davis, among others, are available in the present-day literature. Such omissions as these lead to a doubt of the value of the whole.
