This article presents information on developments related to neurology in the U.S. The National Information Center on Hearing, Speech and Disorders of Human Communication is part of a Neurological Information Network, a group of interrelated information centers which help scientists, physicians and educators keep up-to-date with developments in neurological and sensory research. This center is located at the Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions in Baltimore, Maryland and is supported by the National Institute of Neurological Disease and Stroke. Its mission is to locate, analyze, store, retrieve, synthesize, and disseminate information in hearing, language, speech, and communication disorders. A new Chicago-based service called MediCall, established by the nonprofit American Society of Contemporary Medicine and Surgery, provides for doctors who subscribe a direct telephone connection with medical authorities in such fields as neurology, endocrinology, or ophthalmology on a twenty-four-hour basis. The charge is based on the length of the call.
