Most studies of general , with the excep tion of th .ose of Bard and Macht (3), have been ca.rried out on for not more than 46 d ,aY s. Bard and anim als which survived decerebion Macht described the of seven mesencephalic and pontine cats which survived for 26-154 days. Recently Bard and Woods (17-19, and unpublished data) have studied 62 similar cats during extended periods of survival (28-359 days) and have confirmed all of the findings of Bard and Macht.
