This book of 359 pages is divided into 22 chapters and begins with the origin and differentiation of the neural tube; then follow the topography of the central nervous system, cerebrospinal pathway, the morphology of the nerve cells, interstitial tissue of the central nervous system, nervous integration and then in logical order the internal structure of the whole nervous apparatus. The discussion of the autonomic nervous system is based on chapters 1 to 5 of the author's book on this subject.

The anatomic discussion is adequate, but the physiology and especially the clinical symptomatology leave a great deal to be desired. Too many things are taken for granted. The illustrations are well selected.
