Having approved the duty to arrange, in Amsterdam, a global Congress in behalf of the overseas Sodety for Neurovegetati'V'e study resembling is held each moment yr, it happened to me that it would be worthy whereas to alter its ordinary trend a little. rather than giving basically the chance for l'eading a nurnber of relatively brief loose papers, roughly grouped in lots of different types, we made up our minds firstly a symposium on a different subject 'to be handled from numerous features via a numbe·r of invited audio system, the final day of the congress being in basic terms on hand for brief unfastened communications. The crucial subject for the symposium ultimately selected was once "Neurohormones and N eurohumors" as this topic is of curiosity :to many morphologists, physiologists, pharmacologists, neuro-endocrinologists, biochemists and clini cians, and belongs to a swiftly increasing Held of study. furthermore, it seemed to us that there's a few confusion concerning the defini tion of those phrases which aren't seLdom used indifferently. I was hoping that the sort of symposium could give a contribution 1to a clearer apprehension of the phrases in line with morphological, physiological and biochemical standards in addition to to a clearer knowing of a few difficulties concerned with a purpose to must be matters of destiny investigations.
