In this post, we will see the book Essays On The Patho Physiology Of The Higher Nervous Activity (According To P. P. Pavlov And His School) by A. G. Ivanov-Smolensky.
About the book
This translation has been made from the second revised and supplemented Russian edition, published by the State Medical Publishing House, Moscow 1952.On the occasion of the centenary of Pavlov’s birthday (September 27, 1949) the author of this book lakes the liberty of attempting to fill this gap in the patho-physiologv of the higher nervous activity; his aim is to expound in a number of essays the basic achievements of this young branch of science and to give an outline of its development in the Pavlov school (including its ramifications) up to our time.In the preface to the third edition of the lectures on the Work of the Cerebral Hemispheres published in November 1935, Pavlov wrote: “My new systematic exposition of the whole of our experimental material in the shape of one book will require much labour, and I regard it as my last scientific task. It will take years to complete this work. If only fate will be so kind as to preserve for me at my age the vigour that will enable me to carry out this important duty of my life!’Death prevented Pavlov from carrying out this desire.In the Essays on the Patho-Physiology of the Higher Nervous Activity the author tries, to the best of his ability, to carry out, even in small measure, Pavlov’s will; the author regards this as his duty to Russian science and to his late teacher.
The book was translated from Russian by S. Belsky and was published in 1954 by Foreign Languages Publishing House.
