Unpublished paper, 'Experimental degenerations following unilateral lesions of the cortex cerebri in the bonnet monkey (Macacus sinicus)' by Edward Lindon Mellus

Reference number: AP/71/14

Date: 1895

Description

The object of this investigation is to trace by 'the so-called anatomical method' the degeneration resulting from minute lesions of the motor area of the cortex cerebri through the brain and spinal cord, to locate the path of the conducting fibres in the internal capsule and elsewhere, to follow them as far as possible to their destinations, and by such control observations to check off the results obtained by previous excitation experiments.

Annotations in ink throughout. Includes eight pages of photographs of the brain of the bonnet monkey.

Subject: Zoology / Physiology / Neuroscience

Received 1 May 1895. Read 13 June 1895. Communicated by Victor Horsley.

Whilst the Royal Society declined to publish this paper in full, an abstract of the paper was published in volume 58 of the Proceedings of the Royal Society as 'Experimental degenerations following unilateral lesions of the cortex cerebri in the bonnet monkey (Macacus sinicus)'.
