Description

Recommended for publication in the 'Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society'. The paper contains careful and painstaking investigations. However, is not sure if the mode of investigation gives results much different to those already known using different methods. Suggests some modification required to the section dealing with the ciliary ganglion. Refers to work by Walter Holbrook Gaskell and John Newport Langley.
