Referee's report by Augustus Desire Waller, on a paper 'The chemistry of nerve-degeneration' by Frederick Walker Mott and William Dobinson Halliburton

Reference number: RR/15/223

Date: 14 March 1901

Description

Sectional Committee: Physiology

Recommended for publication in Philosophical Transactions, in full. The tabular summary given in the Proceedings is useful and might be given again in the full paper together with references to illustrations considered by the authors as being most typical. The illustrations are rather more numerous than necessary. The repetition of a 'B.P.' tracing after atropine is redundant. Coloured plates do not seem necessary for the purpose.

[Published in Philosophical Transactions B, 1901].

Endorsed on recto as received 15 March 1901.
