Abstract

ELECTRICAL ACTIVITY OF THE BRA.IW By BIRGER R. KAADA Anatomical Institute, University of Oslo, and Ullevaal Hospital, Department of Neurology, Oslo, Norway This review covers the period from July 1950 through June 1952. Be­ cause of the reduced number' of pages allotted as compared to previous reviews, and because of the numerous papers (about 1200) that have appeared, it has become necessary to limit the review to the physiological aspect of the subject and to exclude most publications on purely clinical observations, in­ cluding activation methods in epilepsy. It is further to be regretted that for the same reasons the review contains no mention of papers on technical ad­ vances and on the relation of the EEGl to biochemistry, pharmacology, and metabolism of the brain. Fortunately the clinical and technical papers have recently been excellently reviewed by Brazier (30); brain metabolism has been treated by McIlwain (168), and the role o(acetyJcholine in the central nervous system by Feldberg (91).
