Excerpt from The Nervous System: An Elementary Handbook of the Anatomy, and Physiology of the Nervous System, for the Use of Students of Psychology and Neurology
The steadily increasing application of physiological facts to problems in psychology, and the rapid development of the science of experimental psychology, have rendered it essential that the student of psychology should possess some knowledge of the anatomy and physiology of the nervous system of man. There are excellent articles on these in most of the recent textbooks of anatomy or of physiology, but generally the information is too detailed, and further, the student must of necessity purchase the complete book to acquire the desired article.
In this small textbook an attempt has been made to present the essential features of the anatomy and physiology of the nervous system in a form sufficiently simple to be understood by a non-medical student. At the same time it is hoped that it will prove useful, as an introductory handbook, for students of medicine, or for those who desire to refresh their memories of the central tracts, in considering cases of neurological interest.
The book makes no pretence of dealing with the application of the subject either to psychology or to neuro-pathology. It has been compiled from many sources but, obviously, it is impossible to acknowledge these individually. Most of the diagrams have been taken from 'Grays Anatomy' (17th edition) and a few from 'Quain's Anatomy' (11th edition), by the courtesy of the editors and publishers of these works. The other diagrams are either original or are modifications of well-known figures.
The author desires to acknowledge with gratitude the great help he has received from Professor Howden, Professor of Anatomy in the University of Durham, under whose supervision the book has been written. He is also greatly indebted to Professor Robinson, Professor of Logic and Psychology in the University of Durham, who has kindly read over the MSS. and has generally defined the scope of the work.
