The 6th International Congress of Electroencephalography and Clinical Neurology met in Vienna in 1965. Three Round Table Symposia were held: (1) Functions of the Spinal Cord: Experimental and Clinical Aspects; (2) Modern Trends in the Neurophysiological Investigation of Brain Diseases; and (3) The EEG in Stress: Physiological and Psychological Aspects.
The spinal cord is treated from two points of view, animal experimentation and human muscle reflexes. Szentagothai has contributed a lucidly presented, well illustrated, new analysis of the synaptic architecture of motoneuron pools. The papers by Eccles, Lundberg, and Wiesendanger effectively complement each other and provide the reader with an informative account of spinal and supraspinal control of reflexes and the role of spinal interneurons. The relationship between animal experimentation and studies on man are indicated in the work of the late Dr. Hodes. Electromyographic studies in man are reviewed by Rushworth and by Hagbarth. It is apparent that
