I. “On Intra-cranial Pressure. Preliminary Note.”

LEONARD HILL, M.B., Assistant Professor of Physiology, University College, London. Communicated by Professor BURDON SANDERSON, F.R.S. Received November 16, 1893. (From the Physiological Laboratories of Oxford and University College.) My purpose in the following note is to submit to the Royal Society the results of experiments, made during the past year, relativg to the “intra-cranial pressure" (i.e., the pressure to which the brain is normally exposed in the cranial cavity), and the changes which can be produced in it by alterations of the form and diminution of the capacity of the cranial cavity.

The experiments were undertaken at the suggestion of Professor Burdon Sanderson, and have been carried out with his help and criticism.

The animals employed were cats or dogs. Ether, chloroform, and morphia were used as anæsthetics.

Methods of Research. Methods of Producing Alterations of Pressure within the Subdural Space.
