This small volume contains four chapters which comprise the William Withering Memorial Lectures which were delivered by Dr. Fulton in 1948. The first chapter discusses the literature and experimentation concerned with the voluntary motor system. The second chapter discusses autonomic representation in the frontal lobes in subhuman primates and presents the experimental evidence regarding the relation of the frontal lobes to personality. The third chapter deals with frontal lobotomy in man. The fourth chapter discusses the newer (1948) experimental work delineating the functional organization of the cerebellum.
These lectures review the related literature prior to 1948 with a comprehensive bibliography
