It is hard to believe that the first edition of Dr. Brock's book was as recent as 1937 in view of its wide acceptance and of the numerous generations of medical students brought up in its tradition. One is not surprised to learn from the present edition that the text has been translated into Portuguese, for it is truly a one volume encyclopedia of applied neuroanatomy and neurophysiology.
It is an axiom that in a work of this kind there are many subjects which cannot receive full consideration; emphasis must be the more or less arbitrary prerogative of the author. While a section on electroencephalography has been added by Dr. Paul F. A. Hoefer, the rising importance of this technic in present day neurology would merit more space. A section by Dr. Joseph Moldaver on electrodiagnostic methods is included, and Dr. Irving Simons has revised the section on urination.
