This superbly prepared monograph is a complete detailed description of the structure of cerebellar cortex as we understand it today. Separate chapters discuss each of the six neuron types in cerebellar cortex, the Structure of the two cortical afferent fiber systems, and the cortical neuroglia. The book ends with a chapter on the optical and electron microscopic methods used by the authors. Each chapter includes a relevant discussion of classical morphology and recent contributions of others before presenting the authors' evidence and their interpretation of the structure under discussion. The book summarizes the authors' extensive publications on cerebellar cortex and includes many observations not yet available in the literature. Short sections, throughout the book, attempt to relate the authors concept of cerebellar structure to function. They have judiciously selected material from the recent explosion of physiological studies to emphasize the functional importance of their observations. The authors have either presented
