The Seat and the Nature of Concussion

  • G. F. Rowbotham


In a study as complex as that of concussion it is vital straight away to outline, without equivocation, my terms of reference. And this I do by stating that the objects of this communication are three-fold. To consider:
  1. 1.

    The clinical states of unconsciousness that result from injury to the brain.

  2. 2.

    The site of the pathological lesion.

  3. 3.

    The nature of the lesion.
