Professor Taylor supplemented his
talk with slides obtained on a recent
trip to the Galapagos.

The thyroid gland, when deranged,
may be either overactive or underac-
tive. An overactivity of the gland re-
sults in a speeding up of all the
building up and breaking down pro-
cesses which are going on in the body.
In other words, the metabolism is in-
creased. With such conditions we. get
loss of weight, accompanied by an
increased appetite, nervousness, a
rapid heart rate; in fact, all the symp-
toms of overactivity of body processes.
Exactly the reverse is true when the
thyroid is functioning below normal.
Then we see a patient who is slug-
gish, with a slow pulse rate, over-
weight, with a tendency to gain weight
easily, and often retardation of the
mental processes.
We are able to measure the meta-
bolic rate and thus have a definite'
yardstick for determining thyroid ac-
tivity. In the case of lowered thyroid
secretion medical science is able to
supplement by thyroid preparations.
Consequently handling cases of this
kind is most interesting since definite
