At the Clinical Session of the American Medical Association in December 1949, a three day program was devoted to neurology and psychiatry. These discussions have been used as a basis for this book, which is to be considered not as a complete treatise, but, rather, as a summary. Enough has been set forth to give the general practitioner a helpful insight into the present state of knowledge of some diseases of the nervous system and their treatment. The neurological topics range from epilepsy to parkinsonism, the rehabilitation of the disabled neurological patient and the evaluation of the electroencephalogram. The psychiatric part is so cautious and conservative, avoiding all controversies of present day psychotherapy and psychodynamics, that it will hardly hold the interest of the general practitioner.
