The preface explains the publication of a monograph on an "isolated neurological sign" and thus disarms criticism on that score. The book is divided into six chapters, an appendix and a bibliography. Babinski's original description of the reflex sign known by his name is followed in order by a study of the plantar reflex signs in the monkey, the baboon, the gibbon, and the chimpanzee under normal circumstances and in conditions of operative experimentation. Then is considered the evolution of cortical dominance, while the appendix deals briefly with the general procedures of anesthesia, surgical technic, electro-surgical methods and surgical aftercare.
