basic science of our specialty. Today, from 1900 to now, we see the evolution of the technique of the surgery of the nervous system, chiefly in the United States. It is a familiar pattern: basic science in Europe, applied science here; basic atomic research in Europe, the “atom bomb” here. I hope to indicate that the time has come for us to turn our attention to basic research as well as to its application.

For example, our own program in Connecticut is based upon a university and the two largest hospitals in the State with the new Veterans Administration Hospital soon to be added. It encompasses 10 of the 13 certified neurosurgeons in the state. Board Requirements I agree completely with the ideas expressed by Doctor Bucy 1 in his presidential address to this Society last year: “It would be unwise to diminish the present flexibility of the training

S everal years ago, at a meeting of the American Neurological Association, Stanley Cobb 7 did us the honor of referring in his presidential address to our work on the frontal lobes, and having his discussion well planned, he produced from his pocket a lantern slide which was thrown on the screen. I recognized it immediately as Becky, our first frontal lobe chimpanzee, and with apologies to Marlowe and Dr. Faustus , Cobb asked “Was this the face that lopped ten thousand lobes, And burnt the topless towers of Ilium?” The gathering was rather taken aback
