"The present monograph represents the culmination of studies begun in 1938. At that time, under the stimulus of Dr. Sidney Tarachow, interest was centered in the amnestic-confabulatory state. The more intensive and systematic phase of the work has been going on since 1947. In the course of time, with the accumulation of data, certain of the earlier hypotheses were rejected as inadequate. It was gradually recognized that the motivation to deny illness provided a unifying concept to cover various patterns of behavior observed in altered states of brain function"--Foreword.
