In this scholarly monograph, the author summarizes present knowledge of the functions of the cerebellum, particularly its anterior lobe, in the light of recent experiments. While past experiments have brought out the inhibitory influence of this organ on postural tonus, especially in birds and lower mammals, it now appears that the organ also exerts a facilitating influence on postural tonus in higher mammals. This difficult subject is presented with admirable clarity. The book will undoubtedly find a place on the list of required reading for every neurologist.
