This discussion of syncope is divided into three parts: first, a brief consideration of the subject, second, a description of the various syndromes, and third, a review of some biological aspects of the reaction in certain instances. The work of Weiss and his associates1 forms the basis of our present knowledge; his classical review in the Oxford Medicine was written about 1937. Since then the chief contributions have come from Engel and Romano3, 6 who have not only utilized the relatively new technic of the electroencephalogram, but have also studied fainting from a modern psychological point of view.
