This compendium of 47 individual papers presented in honor of Derek Denny-Brown is authored by many of the giants of current neurologic thought and research. Most of the papers represent recent development in areas of investigation to which Denny-Brown made outstanding contributions during his long and productive career. Subject matter ranges through comparative and developmental anatomy, neurochemistry, sensory and motor system physiology, neuropathology, cerebral vascular physiology, and clinical neurology. Many papers require considerable sophistication in basic neurologic science to be appreciated.
The volume is well edited and attractively bound and printed. It represents a thoughtfully executed tribute to a distinguished pioneer. It will be of interest to neurologist, neurosurgeon, and any other serious student of the nervous system on the strength of its contents, aside from its significant emotional appeal.
