This is No. 28 of the neurologic monographs edited by Foerster and Wilmanns. It is an ideal monograph, giving to the reader a clear and authoritative account of everything known about the anatomy, embryology, physiology and pathology of the corpus callosum. The author has devoted a great deal of his recognized investigative ability to the study of this important and conspicuous, yet rather neglected and mysterious, portion of the brain, which shares with the pineal gland the honor of having been considered several hundred years ago as the seat of the soul. The most common lesions giving rise to clinical syndromes are complete or partial defect, tumors, vascular lesions, and a peculiar type of degeneration encountered in alcoholics.
