The centennial of his birthday (17 March 1881) triggered the publi­ cation of the chosen Works of Walter Rudolf Hess. even if English translation of a number of of his monographs have seemed, none of his orig­ inal papers has ever been released within the English language. in the course of his sci­ entific occupation, Hess made pioneering contributions within the box of hemo­ dynamics, pyhsiological optics, oculomotor diagnostics, law of cir­ culation, respiratory and temperature, and eventually at the somatomotor, vis­ ceral, and emotional capabilities of the diencephalon. His ideas challenge­ ing association and order in body structure and his perspectives at the vital function of the vegetative fearful method in regulating the task of the vital ner­ vous approach are of significant curiosity to technological know-how and medication and have been in lots of respects a ways previous to his time. those innovations proceed a line of proposal which was once upheld by way of such well-known physiologists as Xavier Bichat, Claude Bernard, and Walter B. Cannon. certainly, Walter Rudolf Hess has develop into one of many infrequent figures within the fresh background of body structure prepared to hold out an integrative research of physically features and to go looking for the fundamental rules of rules and interplay among regulatory platforms. in reality, he expected such principles in biology as suggestions keep watch over and ser­ vomechanisms lengthy ahead of those notions advanced within the box of engineering and electronics.

Here the decrease of blood pressure predominates, particularly in the rostral area of the hypothalamus in the time remaining, this can only be summarized (Figs. 9), It was shown that the triggering of vegetative effects was limited to the most ventral parts of the diencephalon, that is, to the so-called hypothalamus and caudally to the central gray matter of the midbrain. From the area so described one obtains effects of stimulation analogous to those produced by stimulation of the sympathetic trunk, The decisive difference is that, in the latter case, according to the position of the stimulus, this or that effect limited to an individual organ is produced, whereas one obtains a generalized syndrome from the diencephalon.

This occurs for example, at the femur, whose architecture has become the most readily known object for the elucidation of Meyer and Culmann's discovery. The correspondence between the course of the trabeculae and the lines which have been reconstructed on the basis of pressure and tension measurements in Culmann's laboratory, using an artificial model with the form and mechanical load of the femur, is very striking indeed. As in the thigh, Meyer could show an architecture obeying the laws of statics for an additional number of parts of the skeleton.

The motor symptoms we obtained have already been mentioned. The demonstration of vegetative syndromes remains to be discussed; however, 29 Function and Neural Regulation of Internal Organs ...... . . . . . . ·........ '. :. ::. · . . . \. . . . .... . . .
