Physiology

PHYSIOLOGY [Greek: physis, nature + logos, discourse] Study of mechanisms of the nature,  commenced by Aristotle (384–322 BC), and his De Mortu Animalium contains some basic facts of modern physiology. The term ‘physiologia’ was first used by a physician, Jean François Fernel (1497–1558) of Paris in 1542. René Descartes (1596–1650) of France published the first physiology book in Europe, De Homine figuris et latinitate donatus a Florentio Schuyl in 1622. In England William Harvey (1578–1657) provided experimental proof for circulation of blood in 1628 which was fundamental to physiology. Albrecht von Haller (1708–1777), a Swiss physician and first professor of physiology at Göttingen was one of the greatest physiologists of the 18th century, and introduced the concept of impulse and irritability of living tissues in Primae Lineae Physiologiae published in 1747. Experimental physiology was established by Claude Bernard (1813–1878) of Paris. Some notable contributors include: Edward Sharpey-Schaffer (1850–1935), Henry Ernest Starling (1866–1927), Sir William Maddock Bayliss (1860–1924), Sir Thomas Lewis (1881–1945),Sir Charles Sherrington (1857–1952),Lord Edgar Adrian (1889–1977), Sir Joseph Barcroft (1872–1947) and John Scott Haldane (1860–1936).
