We may expect considerable advance in the understanding of those general features of nervous tissue at the chemical, structural and biophysical level which may be expected to act as the substrate to higher mental processes and to provide the brain with the working fabric of its machinery.

Electrical versus chemical neurotransmission.

The degree of apathy and unresponsiveness, however, varies greatly in patients with a medial frontal condition. Faris (1967) described a young girl with haemorrhagic destruction of the cingulate cortex in which a severe withdrawal would alternate with intermittent bouts of agitation and screaming. This is, however, a particular active state and contrasts with the somnolent state or akinetic state of the subthalamic lesion (Yakolev, 1969). Hanson and Brown (1973) report the case of a 27-year-old woman with a subarachnoid haemorrhage, who developed catatonia with waxy flexibility 36 hours after delivery of her third child.

Conclusions The conclusion must be reached that, arising out of the fabric of nervous tissue, there are a number of functions which seem to be important generative mechanisms of higher mental functions. Of these, we have singled out the capacities for learning and remembering as well as the capacities for logic and intelligence. These functions we believe to be distributed ubiquitously throughout the brain as a consequence of their generation out of nerve tissue and as a consequence of the fact that they are defining functions of the nerve cells themselves.
