The Brain Institute of Moscow, one of the numerous institutions for scientific research in the Soviet Union, deals only with investigations pertaining to the morphology and electrophysiology of the brain of man and animals. Closely associated with the institute at Moscow is a special department of the Neuropsychiatric Institute of Kharkov devoted to similar work, while a laboratory of this department and a special clinic are engaged in anatomic studies in cases of aphasia, apraxia and agnosia.
