The emotions which express themselves through the alimentary tract have not yet been thoroughly studied. Some slight attention was given them during the later part of the Great War when we discovered many men who had literally no stomach for fighting. Further, insufficient attention has been paid to the mechanism and appearances of the normal tract, and we need to revise the technique of our routine examinations. There is nowadays, for example, no lack of power in our X-ray apparatus causing us to demand a starved stomach and purged bowel to enable us to see through a patient.
