A Contribution to the Morbid Anatomy and the Pathology of General Paralysis of the Insane

  • David Orr (a1) and Thomas Philip Cowen (a2)

At the last February meeting of the Manchester Pathological Society we made a preliminary communication upon this subject, limited to a description of the changes found in the cortical nerve-cells and the descending degenerations in the spinal cord. Since then we have examined a much larger number of cases, and can therefore give a fuller description, with observations upon other points in the morbid anatomy of general paralysis of the insane.
