Henry Head

 

From The Nature of Literature, 1942 by Thomas Clark Pollock

Perhaps the most important, the response depended upon the general state of the organism's nervous system, or on what Dr. Henry Head calls physiological vigilance.12   (Etc.)

...     The experiments of Dr. Henry Head . . . described in his Aphasia and Kindred Disorders of Speech, are illuminating . . .     D.r Head's studies are or especial interest because a number of his patients were soldiers, in the prime of life, who had suffered cerebral lesions from gunshot wounds. "Many of them," he says, "were extremely intelligent, willing, and anxious to be examined thoroughly."   (..)   "Some aspects of the disordered functions of speech recover more rapidly than others, and the clinical manifestations assume more or less characteristic forms.   (Etc.) 28

A number of Dr. Head's conclusions concerning semantic reactions29 are or especial interest to the present study. His observations indicate clearly, for one thing, that semantic reactions, though related to, are not identical with "thought."   (Etc.)

    28 op. cit., Vol. I, p. 146.
    29 Though Dr. Head does not use the term semantic reaction, he speaks of semantic aphasia, and one of the most illuminating of his classifications of speech disorders is placed under this heading.
