Sort: Oldest first
Gall admits, in the brain, two kinds of fibres; the one, divergent, proceeding from the cerebral peduncles to the convolutions, and constituting what he calls appareils de formation: the other, convergent, and proceeding from the convolutions to the centre of the organ, constituting what he calls appareils de reunion. The first, as a whole, form tho organs of the mental faculties; the latter are commissures, which unite parts of the organ that are double and in pairs.
