In traumatic affections of the nervous system two possibilities are considered: one when they follow the accident immediately and consist of a damage to the cellular tissue or to the projection and association tracts with the result of immediate cessation of function of the parts depending on those nervous elements. The other possibility is when a certain more or less considerable interval passes between the date of the accident and the appearance of the disturbed function in the body. The first occurrence does not require any special emphasis, as the relation between the trauma and sensorimotor manifestations is very evident.
