The series of investigations, of which this is the first report, have in view obtaining fundamental information as to the response of the animal organism to such an asphyxial environment, looking toward devising a therapeutic procedure for apparently moribund cases of carbon monoxide poisoning. This first study deals with the neuropathology found in four dogs after continuous exposures of 20 to 30 minutes to 0.6 per cent carbon monoxide by
