Cambridge:: Cambridge University Press, 1977., 1977. 8vo. , 180 pp. Figs., indices. Brown gilt-stamped cloth, dust-jacket; jacket with small tear at top edge. Very good. ISBN: 0521215056 Includes 6 essays: I: Nobel Laureate Hodgkin ["Chance and Design in Electrophysiology: An Informal Account of Certain Experiments on Nerve Carried Out Between 1934 and 1952."]; [II]: Andrew Fielding Huxley [Looking back on muscle]; IV: Wilhelm Feldberg [The early history of synaptic and neuromuscular transmission by acetylcholine: reminiscences of an eye witness]; V: William Albert Hugh Rushton [Some memories of visual research in the past 50 years], Roderic Alfred Gregory [The gastrointestinal hormones: a historical review]; VI: Robert Alexander McCance [Perinatal physiology]. / "This book consists of essays on the historical development of six fields of physiology which have flourished in recent decades. They were written as part of the celebrations of the Centenary of the Physiological Society in 1976. The authors are leading physiologists in their respective fields and are not only eye witnesses of the major developments: in many cases they were themselves the major discoverers. The essays therefore give unique personal accounts which convey much of the fun and the trouble which accompanies research." – jacket.
