The book is divided into three parts: the first on the peripheral nervous system, including the motor endplate (pp 3-171) is written by Prof Dr. Albert Bischoff of the University of Zurich Neurological Clinic and Polyclinic; the second on the auditory, vestibular, olfactory, and gustatory end organs (pp 173-337) is by Prof Dr. Heinrich Spoendlin of the University of Zurich Otorhinolaryngological Clinic and Polyclinic; and the third on the retina (pp 339-441) is by Prof Dr. Jean Babel of the University of Geneva Eye Clinic. The book is unusual from two standpoints: (1) It contains, under one cover, ultrastructural examples of virtually all neural structures related to the peripheral nervous system in addition to those of the peripheral nervous system proper. (2) All three parts include normal as well as pathological material, thus facilitating comparison between various biological states. The sections on pathological anatomy are, by necessity, considerably less complete
