Head Injuries in Relation to the Psychoses and Psycho-neuroses

  • Richard Eager (a1)

Until the outbreak of hostilities in August, 1914, the number of cases of mental disorder associated with head injury investigated by any one individual must of necessity have been very small. Hence the sparcity of literature on this subject. Never before the outbreak of the late war have so many men been engaged in armed conflict against one another, and never before have arms of such a destructive kind been employed.
