This volume is a compilation of the studies on the comparative anatomy of the cerebellum and the analysis of the cerebellar connections carried out during the last twenty years at the Anatomical Institute, University of Oslo, Norway. The stated objective is to determine "to what extent the morphology of the mammalian cerebellum and the organization of its connections are consistent with the idea of a functional and topographical localization within that organ." The authors, from a definitive review of the literature, have compared and contrasted the latest neurophysiological data with their strictly anatomical studies. The volume then attempts to interpret these physiological observations in the light of structure. Throughout the monograph is stressed the need for those who work in the field of electrophysiology to eliminate much of the confusion now present in the literature by paying more attention to the anatomical organization of the cerebellum. The authors also stress
