This small pamphlet with forty-four photographs gives a graphic idea of the author's method of study of the gross anatomy of the brain by defibrillation. The technic is carefully described, and consists of separation of the various tracts in the hardened brain by blunt dissection, or what the author calls "Zerfaserung" or defibrillation. One can get an excellent idea of the various pathways in the brain by this method. The idea of studying the hardened brain by this means is not new, and the author claims no originality for it, but he has perfected the method. This small booklet is an excellent one for students of brain anatomy, neurologists and laboratory workers. The printing is clear and the illustrations excellent, as in all of Springer's publications.
