This work on the anatomy of the nervous system needs no introduction to American neuropsychiatrists. Since its first publication it has been successively revised, and this edition as well as the last has been undertaken by Professor Addison. Very few changes have been made in the present volume. The changes consist in a description of the present-day conception of the neuroglia, and several new drawings simplifying the connections of the extrapyramidal system; three new drawings have been inserted to show the fiber tract preparations in the cerebral hemisphere. The changes in the text are principally in connection with the new or altered figures. This book is undoubtedly the best manual for the study of morphology and the fiber tracts of the central nervous system.
