The last session con­ Blood Flow held in Philadelphia on June 6-9, tains discussions of several topics which were felt to be of sufficient importance and interest to 1973. Since the first meeting on cerebral blood flow, held in Lund in 1964, the number of par­ warrant extended consideration. These con­ ticipants in these symposia has steadily increased cerned the questions of neurogenic control of until at this meeting it was necessary to conduct the cerebral circulation, the role of failure of simultaneous sessions.
