On some Mental Symptoms of Ordinary Brain-disease

  • De. Gasquet (a1)

In reading the following notes of some cases that have fallen under my observation during the last few years, my object, I may say at once, is not to impart information. It would hardly be becoming that I should do so, since I have much smaller means of observation than most of you enjoy. My desire is rather a selfish one—to learn myself, not to teach others—and to ascertain whether you have noted the symptoms I am about to describe. If it appears that they are tolerably frequent, and not merely due to a “run” of coincidences in my own practice, which I cannot determine, they seem to me of importance, in both pathology and diagnosis.
