This symposium reports the results of a number of interesting studies which are focused on the electrophysiological and morphological development of the normal fetal and neonatal brain. Both normal experimental and human data are presented, and an attempt is made to correlate the structurefunction state in the immature brain with susceptibility to seizures. Several studies of the changing nature of evoked cortical potentials in animal and man are also presented, the results of which are most interesting for those interested in developmental neurophysiology. Several clinical papers on focal electroencephalographic abnormalities, the significance of neonatal seizures, subdural fluid accumulations, and breathholding spells in infants round out a very interesting symposium. This work provides a worthwhile current reference for those who are interested in developmental neurology.
