Abstract

The problem of the mind-body relationship seems destined for a new turn if the conclusions of the products of modern surgery are sustained by further research. The doctrine of specific neurological patterns definitely functioning with a given response has suffered serious reverses with each assault upon the theory of brain localization. If the left anterior artery of the cerebral hemisphere is definitely established by surgery as the sole physiological support of what has been understood as “consciousness,” many questions which were formerly raised will disappear.
