On the Degenerative Lesions of the Arterial System in the Insane, with Remarks upon the nature of Granular Ependyma

  • Cecil F. Beadles (a1)

The degenerative changes in the tissues of lunatics are more or less well known, at any rate the grosser or naked-eye lesions that are to be expected, but even amongst these there are some points that, I venture to think, may receive further attention. Of histological changes we can say more positively that much light may yet be thrown on their nature. As to their cause—the cause of the degeneration of nerve cells, for instance—we are lamentably ignorant.
