A Psychological Study of the Sequeles of Encephalitis Lethargica in Children, is a thesis embodying the results of a research carried out at the Royal Hospital for Sick Children, Yorkhill, Glasgow. It was begun in 1923, and the actual testing was completed be the end of 1928. All the material has been collected and analysed by the writer, who is wholly responsible for the work as presented. An attempt has been made to study intensively, over a period of years, a group of children who have suffered from encephalitis lethargica. Part I.A. deals with the intellectual changes that follow the disease, as judged by the response to certain well-known intelligence tests, repeated at varying intervals after the onset of the disease. Part I.B. is a study of the affective-conative changes. And Part II. aims at relating physical signs, symptoms, and sequels to intelligence and conduct.
