Book Description Forgotten Books, United States, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 229 x 152 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Excerpt from The Anatomy of the Central Nervous System of Man: And of Vertebrates in General Not without a certain does the author come with this edition before his circle of readers. Though the previously small book has now grown to larger proportions, still it presents a subject which has not previously been comprehensively treated: the comparative morphology of the central nervous system. Three parts have arisen from the original little work: parts which are so far independent of each other that they who have less interest for the more general matters and for comparative anatomy, by turning past the first two parts will find in the third a somewhat enlarged and richly-illustrated edition of the old book. Grateful for the interest which the medical profession have manifested in the work, the third part, which deals exclusively with the mammalian, and especially with the human, brain, has been carefully rewritten and enlarged through the addition of numerous figures made from photographs of sections. In order to facilitate the study from sections a complete series of frontal sections through the entire brain has been added. Part I is introductory, giving the fundamental ideas accepted at the present time. It takes into consideration also function, which was not considered in earlier editions. The second part of the book realizes finally a plan which, since the beginning of my studies in brain-anatomy, I have never allowed to escape my eye. Resting almost completely upon my own investigations, it gives a review of that which may be said, with some certainty, of the structure and course of development of the central nervous system in the vertebrate series. Those who have worked in this field, still cultivated, will, considering the difficulties which tower up everywhere, leniently judge that which is proffered. The first attempt at a general presentation, the book shows everywhere the insufficiencies which such a work must present. No one knows that better than the author himself. If, as here, the plan of the whole forbids going into details, it will not be possible to always give a sufficient foundation for that which is presented. So far as it has been possible, this has been supplied in the numerous figures whose addition has been made possible through the liberality of the publishers. This edition contains 113 figures more than the Fourth, and of the new ones, 99 are devoted to comparative anatomy.
