This second volume, entitled "Modern Trends in Neurology," contains twenty-four essays by twenty-three authors, twenty of whom are British, discussing varied topics in which neurologists are evincing investigative interest currently. No attempt has been made to cover all aspects of present-day neurological development. The orientation of the volume is toward the basic sciences, and ten of its chapters are specifically concerned with anatomy, biochemistry, physiology, and pathology. An index of current neurological emphasis is provided by the inclusion of four chapters dealing with cerebrovascular disease, three concerning muscle disease, three discussing various aspects of epilepsy, and two concerning disorders of the base of the skull and the cervical cord. In addition are included papers on tissue reaction in the nervous system, acute viral encephalomyelitis, aural vertigo, sarcoidosis of the nervous system, and neurosurgical treatment of disorders of the affect.
