In this volume three symposiums and seven unrelated articles are published. The symposiums deal with the morphology and physiology of the synapse, the spinal fluid and some paraventricular organs, and the reticular formation of the brain stem. The other articles discuss (1) efferent fibers from the frontal lobe to the thalamus; (2) the insula in primates; (3) the number of neurons in the cerebral cortex, their receptive surfaces, and their pattern of connections; (4) the development of the brain of the ostrich; (5) cellular topography at the border between the diencephalon and telencephalon; (6) regulation of the proliferative process in the developing brain; and (7) a neutralized push-pull amplifier.

Much of the material presented should be of interest to those engaged in anatomic and physiological research. The articles are presented in English, French, and German, depending on the preference of the individual authors. Each article is followed by a discussion.
