Description

Sectional Committee: Zoology

Not recommended for publication in the 'Proceedings of the Royal Society of London'. Refers to work by Smallwood [?] and Wu [?]. There is no discussion of the pharmacological assumptions, which weakens the thesis. The physiological method also weakens the paper and some of the figures are inconclusive. The discussion fails to examine the qualifications required for the conclusion. Suggests the author reconsider his conclusions.

[Not published]

Endorsed on verso as received 28 March 1940.
