A correction is proposed, the hyperbolic tangent, to linearize the data over all sizes, and evolutionary reasons for the relatively small brain size of the largest vertebrates are discussed.

Body size and metabolism

In spite of the theoretical weakness of the surface law, the computation of basal metabolism to the unit of the body surface seems at present the most satisfactory method available of equalizing experimental results for differences in the size of experimental animals.

Regional Development of the Brain in Early Life

The contents of this symposium are not immediately applicable to clinical work but will nevertheless be of great interest to those concerned with neurological problems in infancy and this book is highly recommended.

Reproductive, gestational, and newborn physiology of the chimpanzee.

Breeding statistics for the last 6 yr and problems of fetal waste and infant mortality are presented and experience with a potential advantages of semi-free-ranging breeding systems are presented.

Encephalization and Obstetrics in Primates with Particular Reference to Human Evolution

Evidence of differences between primate species in the growth rate of the brain and/or in the length of development during ontogeny suggests that encephalization of adults cannot be expected to be proportionate to that of the neonate or of individuals at any particular developmental stage.
