In this book there is presented in compact form a digest of the work of the Oxford school of physiology on reflexes at the spinal level. Professor Sherrington and his associates have been working in this field for many years. They have developed a technic that has not been equaled elsewhere, have shown remarkable originality and insight in planning their experiments and have contributed most of what is known about spinal reflexes. Those who have followed fairly closely the large number of highly technical papers which they have published on this subject will welcome this brief digest, interpretation and authoritative summary of their work, and those who have not had time to read the individual papers will find in the book an account of the reflex activity of the spinal cord which is clearly stated and easily understood.

The book differs from the "Integrative Action of the Nervous System,"
