Excerpt from A Manual of Psychological Medicine and Allied Nervous Diseases: Containing the Description, Etiology, Diagnosis, Pathology, and Treatment of Insanity, With Especial Reference to the Clinical Features of Mental Diseases, and the Allied Neuroses, and Its Medico-Legal Aspects
In diseases of the brain both the regional diagnosis and the pathological diagnosis are to-day attracting much attention, and the brilliant work of such writers -as Drs. H. Charlton Bastian, L. S. Forbes Winslow, Bucknill and Tuke, Prof. Krafft-ebbing, Drs. A. Voison, Foville and Luys, Clouston and Blandford, Loggia, Hitzig, F errier, Charcot and Lusanne, brown-sequard, and Hughlings Jack son, in England, Germany, France, and Italy, with the able work of our neurologists and asylum superintendents at home, makes the writer only too conscious of his own defects in this field of research.
