Die Entwicklung des menschlichen Gehirns wahrend der ersten Monate

Nature volume 70, pages 293294 (28 July 1904) | Download Citation



THIS work, as its title indicates, deals with the development of the human brain during the first four months. Half of the book, on the development of the cerebral hemispheres and the origin of the intramedullary tracts, is original matter, and continues the work already commenced in 1890 by the author's paper on the organisation of the medulla. The remaining half of the book deals with the early histogenesis of the nervous system, and is practically a recapitulation of the author's previous results, all, however, carefully re-studied in the light of additional material, and copiously illustrated with original photographs.
