Whether an International Congress brings out the best work of the best men may be questioned, but it is beyond question that in a city so full of interest as Moscow foreign visitors arc apt to sacrifice sections to sight-seeing.
Section VII. was one of the busiest and best attended of all the fifteen sections into which the Congress was divided, and not a few communications were left unread. Many nationalities were found at its meetings, and Honorary Presidents of Section were courteously appointed from each, Dr. Yellowlees being chosen to represent Great Britain. As the section included both nervous and mental maladies the field was very wide and the subjects very varied and very mixed: Obsessions and Fixed Ideas, Juvenile Dementia, Pathology of the Nerve-cell, Hypnotism and its Legal Relations, Tabes Dorsalis, Polyneuritis, Inherited Neuroses and Degeneration, Transitory Alcoholic Mania, Treatment by Alternations of Temperature, etc. Dr. Shuttleworth, of London, Dr. Sutherland, of Edinburgh, and Dr. Robertson, of Glasgow were the only readers of papers from this country.
