Abstract

I beg, first of all, to express my acknowledgment of the great honor that has been shown to me in inviting me to speak before a circle of medical men and scientific workers in a country so renowned for its rapid progress in every branch of culture.

Neurology, whose representatives are here assembled, owes much to America, which has largely advanced our knowledge of this department of science on many highly important points.

At the annual meeting of the German Society of Nerve Specialists, held last October in Heidelberg, I summed up our position with reference to the light thrown by recent research on the clinical diagnosis of the syphilogenous diseases of the central nervous system.

To-day I beg to submit to your consideration the question whether and to what extent our views on this subject have undergone change since then.
