Excerpt from Clinical Lectures on Mental Diseases
In regard to how this Edition differs from the last, I can only say it is mostly a reprint, but yet I have endeavoured to embody in it the few advances in our knowledge that have taken place during the past two years. I have especially directed attention to the important therapeutic measure of using thyroid extract in certain cases of insanity, in the way devised by Dr Lewis Bruce, now one of our medical staff here. I have taken advantage, of the original patho logical work done here, and in the Scottish Asylums patho logical laboratory, in that time by Dr W'. F. Robertson, under whose direction the new Plates kyl, XVII, XVIII. And XIX, which illustrate the recently discovered facts about chromatolysis, atrophies, and hypertrophies in the neurons have been prepared.
