In these two numbers of the Centralblatt Dr. Piltz gives the results of a very careful study of the irregularities of the pupil in nervous diseases. Half a century ago, the frequency of this symptom in general paralysis was noted by Baillarger; since then many observations have been made by physicians upon the state of the pupil in insanity. Many of these have been cited by Dr. Piltz in the good old German way of reviewing the whole state of our knowledge of the subject before giving us the result of his clinical observations and experiments upon animals. The articles are illustrated by some instructive engravings giving the varying shapes of the pupils and the anatomical distribution of the nerves of the iris.
