In a consideration of the relation of psychoanalysis to neuropsychiatry, the author has attempted to build on the conception of conditioned reflexes the conception of psychiatry which has for its basis certain anatomic and physiologic facts. This is a rare achievement even to have been attempted, since the psychoanalyst usually disregards the fundamental structures and functions of the nervous system in the development of his conception. This author, however, actually bases the workings of the mind on mechanisms of the brain and on this basis has written an extraordinarily interesting monograph.
