Not illustrated. 1907 edition. Excerpt: ...permanent dementia caused by temporary and complete anaemia of the cerebral cortex have the following important bearings upon the subject under discussion. (1) Complete restoration of cortical function may occur provided collateral circulation is re-established before biochemical changes of coagulation necrosis occurs. (2) The restoration of function in the transitory aphasias, word blindness, word deafness, monoplegias, hemiplegias and disturbances of consciousness met with in syphilitic endarteritis cerebri, is explained by a temporary anaemia occasioned by occlusion of an artery without spreading thrombosis occurring. Collateral circulation restores the function. Also the extraordinary recovery from seizures of general paralysis suggests that a portion of the symptoms may be due to functional disturbance of the cortex brought about by circulatory derangements. A large number of the cortical cells in general paralysis show acute changes due, no doubt, to vascular disturbances. Many exhibit the swollen dropsical condition of functional change and, as the dog's anaemic brain shows, capable of recovery; others show the acute necro-biotic change, incapable of recovery and if psycho-motor in function giving rise to convulsions in the stage of irritation preceding death.
