"Cushing advanced the theory that the hypothalamus is responsible for the development of peptic ulcer. This work contains his four principal contributions to pituitary-hypothalamic interrelationships, including a reprint of his description of pituitary basphilism." [Garrison & Morton]. "The four papers in this volume were 'brought together for the convenience of those whom the general theme may interest' (Preface). The papers had all been published elsewhere and were the basis for four different lectures Cushing had given in England, Canada, and America during the years 1930 to 1932." [Heirs of Hippocrates].
