The book has two parts. Part I deals with the personal relations between Lashley and Hebb, with Lashley's refusal to take part in Hebb's book, with issues of priority on ideas like reverberations, cell assemblies and modifiable synapses. This part of the book attempts to explain why is it that so much credit is given to Hebb and too little to Lashley. Part II is a collection of papers of Lashley some of which were not published anywhere else. Part I will be most important for those interested in history and sociology of science and of Neuropsychology in particular. Part II is a treasure for anybody interested in mechanisms for higher brain functions.
