Extract

In a previous communication to the Turin Academy of Medicine, the author called attention to the frequency of transverse ridging of the nails in the insane, and suggested that the phenomenon was a sign of oscillations in histogenetic activity dependent on unstable conditions of metabolism in mental disease. The present paper is a further discussion of the subject.
