The Russians have a medicobiological station at Sukhumi, now referred to as the Institute for Experimental Pathology and Therapeutics. The Institute has excellent facilities for experimentation on monkeys. This small volume is devoted exclusively to the study of physiological and pathological problems as seen in monkeys. Part 1 deals with the physiology and pathology of higher nervous activity in monkeys; part 2 with pathological morphology and physiology; and part 3 with the pathology of infectious diseases in monkeys. The data obtained are valuable because of close physiological and pathological relationship of monkeys to man.
