This is the thirty-first volume of a popular science series, entitled "Verständliche Wissenschaft." It attempts to present to the reader a concise statement of the known facts about the development, structure and function of the nervous system—central, peripheral and vegetative. It is not clear whether the little book is addressed to the uninformed layman, the undergraduate student or the physician in medical practice. Certain it is that none of these possible ends could be served with profit by the booklet as it is. The presentation is too compact for the uninitiated, too meager in scope as a source of information for the struggling student and too elementary for the graduate physician in quest of reinstruction.
