EXAMINATION OF BRAIN.
• • •
The brain was immersed at once into Müller's fluid, and
as soon as hardened the brain surfaces were photographed. [footnote 1].
[footnote 1] I am indebted to Mr. O. G. Mason for the original photographs, but one of
which is reproduced in this article ; all four photographs were exhibited at the
