The editors, realizing the great potentialities of stereotaxis in brain surgery, are confronted with the problem of its "blindness" and its inaccuracies. One wonders if, when they began this study, they were aware of the magnitude of the task of giving this method much better credentials as far as its use on the human brain is concerned. The problems they encountered and their methods of solving them are clearly and interestingly portrayed. The inability to use as planes of reference those found adequate in animal experiments led them to use reference points specific to the brain itself and visible in the ventriculogram. Since the ventricular system is the chief landmark of orientation, the editors have presented a careful study as to the extent of the normal, as well as the pathologically deformed ventricular system. In order to use the ventriculogram for direct dimensional measurements, they have developed a roentgenographic technique
