TitleReferee's report by Charles Scott Sherrington, on a paper 'An investigation into the structure of the lumbo-sacral-coccygeal cord of the macaque monkey (macacus sinicus)' by Mabel Purefoy Fitzgerald
DateOctober 1905
DescriptionSectional Committee: Physiology

Recommended for publication in Philosophical Transactions. The text is concise and well-arranged as it stands and should be published in full. No modifications are necessary. The illustrations are all necessary to the text, but both drawings and charts can with advantage be much reduced in size. The paper contains a large amount of laborious and careful work. The importance of the results is perhaps hardly commensurate with the labour involved; but the results are nevertheless in various respects new.

[Published in Proceedings of the Royal Society A, 1940].
