The primary aim of the A. M. A. Archives of Neurology is to further knowledge of clinical neurology, and thus to advance neurological science in general. The earlier triumphs of clinical neurology added greatly to our understanding of motility, sensory and speech disturbances, and the integration of autonomic function. But clinical neurology has now become a broader discipline. As more becomes known about the nervous system, it is evident that these earlier understandings are but the beginnings. Increasing are the indications that a host of metabolic accidents, both inborn and acquired, not only of the brain itself but of other bodily systems as well, are reflected in the malfunction of the cerebrum. The growing awareness of the central regulation of all bodily processes and the telling significance of neurohumoral agents more and more intimately links the neurological sciences with the expanding body of knowledge of the other medical sciences.
