This book contains material which will be of immediate interest to neurologists, surgeons, internists, pathologists, and others who are actively concerned with the problems of cerebral vascular disease. The declared intention of the Third Princeton Conference was to limit the agenda to occlusive disease and to consider it in relation to transient ischemic attacks, developing strokes, and completed strokes. There were some 50 participants, most of whom have contributed original work in this field, and the results of their communion as set forth in this well-edited volume indicate that considerable advances have been made since the last conference and that much remains to be done.
In the section devoted to methods of investigation, Heyman contributes an interesting section on his arm-to-retina fluorescein test and its application both to the diagnosis of carotid stenosis and to the study of the retinal circulation. New methods of estimating cerebral blood flow are described
