Pasamanick records the results of a study of the treatment with various anticonvulsant drugs of twenty-one boys with various behavior disorders and with

electroencephalic abnormalities. The medications used included dilantin, mesantoin, tridione and phenobarbital, and the treatment was carried on during residential stay in a children's psychiatric ward. Many simultaneous independent observations were made. The anticonvulsant drugs yielded almost uniformly disappointing results. Better results reported elsewhere in outpatient treatment may well have been due to various psychological effects. An hypothesis is also offered for the rather consistent reports of improvement of behavior disorders under amphetamine therapy. It is postulated by the author that amphetamine may inhibit some of the 'random, circular and poorly integrated stimuli tracks, secondary to minor or major lesions, which have been set off in the brain by an extrinsic or intrinsic stimulus'.
