Excerpt from Further Advances in Physiology

The volume now put before the reader by the editor is a sequel to 'Recent Advances in Physiology,' and deals with certain branches of the science other than those dealt with in that volume, the treatment of the subject-matter being, in both, on the same general lines. The aim of the editor and his coadjutors has been to write up their views on certain selected subjects which, both by their importance and interest, will stimulate the student, give him a view wider than that which the ordinary text-book can give him, and at the same time rivet his attention on subjects which have a particular application to Pathology and Clinical Medicine. While the former volume dealt mainly with problems of metabolism, secretion, and excretion, this is devoted to the consideration of certain problems concerning the circulation and respiration, the neuro-muscular system, and vision. Prof. B. Moore, writing on the relation of the heart-beat to its nutritive fluid, has developed this subject into a general consideration of the equilibrium of colloid and crystalloid in living cells. Mr. Martin Flack has discussed the present position of the myogenic and neurogenic theories of the heart-beat, and analysed the recent researches which have modified the lines of thought on this subject. Dr. Thomas Lewis has given the reader an account of the venous pulse, and those methods of investigating the cardiac cycle in man which have done so much, in the hands of Dr. James Mackenzie and others, to elucidate the different forms of heart trouble. The editor has dealt, firstly, with the wonderful advances in experimental method made possible by Carrel's surgical union of the blood-vessels: secondly, with blood pressure and its measurement in man.
