The first edition of this book appeared in 1912; therefore, the second edition is really in a sense a new book. In the 137 pages the author has presented in a very simple and direct manner the chief anatomic and physiologic functions of the central nervous system. There are 117 illustrations, many of which are in colors. Besides, there are many explanatory tables of the course of the fibers, such as the sensory and motor, cerebellar and so on. The reviewer knows of no small book in which the illustrations and tables have been so well conceived and selected. The text is also adequate for the purpose. The book can be recommended to students of psychology and neurology.
