TitleReferee's report by Charles Smart Roy, on a paper 'A research into the elasticity of the living brain and the conditions governing the recovery of the brain after compression for short periods' by A G Levy
Date9 April 1894
DescriptionNot recommended for publication in the Proceedings of the Royal Society of London. The apparatus is insufficiently delicate to take accurate measurements. The work does not take into account the recent work of Charles Smart Roy and Charles Scott Sherrington. There is no summary of conclusions and the results are poorly analysed.
