First Lines of the Practice of Physic By William Cullen, Peter Reid

First Lines of the Practice of Physic By William Cullen, p. 306. "There have occurred so many instances of this kind that I believe physicians are generally disposed to suspect organic lesions of the brain to exist in almost every case of insanity 1553 This however is probably a mistake for we know that there have been many instances of insanity from which the persons have entirely recovered and it is difficult to suppose that any or g nic lesions of the brain had in such case taken place Such transitory cases indeed render it probable that a state of excitement changeable by various causes had been the cause of such instances of insanity"
