This report gives a synopsis of the courses of instruction and observation laid out at the Psychiatric Institute for the benefit of the physicians of the other state institutions, covering periods of one week to three months. It also describes the efforts to establish standards so that the information might be used for statistical purposes, and gives a report of the clinical work, with descriptions or histories of cases of the various clinical classifications, the histologic findings in the brain and cord of those cases available for such examination, whose histories are given, and of other specimens sent examination from other states, with an analysis of the cases by groups and subgroups. The whole report makes an interesting and valuable study for reference by the alienist or psychiatrist.
