The first edition of this book appeared in 1933 and was reviewed in the Archives (10: 721 [Nov.] 1933). The present edition is essentially the same except for a new index and the addition of a supplementary chapter entitled "The Effect of Stimulation of the Cortex Cerebri upon the Effector Mechanisms Which Mediate Movements of the Iris and Membrana Tympani" (reprinted from J. Nerv. & Ment. Dis. 85:528, 1937).

In my opinion there is no necessity for altering the criticisms and conclusions which were presented in some detail in the review of the original edition.
