Abstract This is an extraordinary book. The first 8 pages reveal the authors' message. The next 115 pages are a manual of laboratory technic, and the last 364 are a treatise on neurohistology. The emphasis of the latter section is first on the facts that "the brain reacts in very similar ways to the most varied kinds of damage. Its repertory of pathological responses consists of a relatively small number of units." Second, it is emphasized that the stage at which the lesion is examined is most important, and, finally, the distribution of the lesions must be accurately known. Most neurologists will readily accept and commend all this. The authors' main thesis is that "the brain as an object of histopathological study is also an organ of the body like any other, and not something unique, to be measured by entirely different standards."
