Abstract

It is my intention in this contribution to present without extended comment or study of the literature of the subject, new diagrams of the zones and centers of the human cerebrum, and on the basis of these schemes to indicate a series of cranial areas for operation in cases of brain tumor. In 1898 I published a scheme of brain centers which is reproduced in the diagrams (Figs. 1 and 2). Then as now I believed in the separate localization in the cerebrum of the representation of sensation and of movements. My views regarding this subject have not changed in any essential particulars, and were presented in detail at the meeting of the American Neurological Association held in Boston, June, 1901.1

Recently acquired clinicopathologic facts regarding cerebral localization are chiefly of interest in connection with the question of a separate center for the socalled stereognostic perception. The weight of
