Since the second edition of this book (1948), there has been a great advance in our knowledge of neuroanatomy and neurophysiology. The present editor of this volume has revised the text to conform to the more recent accessions in these fields. Many sections of the book have been largely rewritten and expanded, particularly those portions dealing with nerve degeneration and the sections on the cerebellum, thalamic nuclei, and the reticular system of the brain stem. Important additions have also been incorporated into the chapters on the prefrontal areas and the cortical projection systems. In general, there has been a page-to-page revision of the entire text, with new illustrations added. The fundamental changes make this virtually a new book, a text that can be, as in the past, highly recommended.
