This is the first of a new series of annual reviews contemplated by its editor, whose aim it is to report on the progress made in the fields of neurology and psychiatry. To insure a semblance of cohesion and evaluation of the material offered, the editor invited a number of distinguished specialists, actively engaged in their various specialties, to cull the literature for any significant contributions and trends and to report their findings. The result is more than abstract service, for it is also a critical survey of the sciences involved. The latter fact justifies the work and makes it a valuable reference tome to the practicing neuropsychiatrist.
Interesting is the fact that out of 695 pages only 155 are devoted to psychiatry, whereas neurology is amply covered in 540 of the closely typed pages.
