An important work on hypnotism, first published in 1888 and here revised with a new foreword by the author. Forel (1848-1931), a Swiss psychiatrist, entomologist, and brain specialist, was the first to achieve histological preparations of human brain specimens. For his research and description on the anatomy of the brain, one of the regions of the hypothalamus was named in his honour.
