The XXX Congress of the foreign Union of Physiological Sciences came about in Vancouver, Canada, in July 1986; and this quantity incorporates a collection of the overview Lectures which shaped a part of the Congress programme. They disguise many of the parts of up to date body structure and have been awarded via unusual scientists from many elements of the area.

The Editors are thankful to all the authors who supplied the manuscripts which visit make up this ebook, and to John Donald for his helpful assistance within the coaching of the ultimate textual content; in addition in fact to the entire members whose participation made the Congress the good fortune which it used to be. it's was hoping that this quantity will offer an invaluable keepsake of the event.

During the summer of 1916, however, George N. Stewart (Fig. 12) at Western Reserve Medical School, with the aid of his assistant Dr. Julius M. Rogoff (Fig. 13), launched an attack on the validity of Cannon's theory of the emergency function of the adrenals. It was the first time that the entire corpus of one of Cannon's scientific investigations was challenged. Stewart, a physiologist from the University of Edinburgh who was extraordinarily welltrained in physics and mathematics, proved to be a formidable opponent.

In his first year at the Harvard Medical School he found the many hours of lectures so tedious that he began to search for a more productive way to use his time. Certain that he could master some of the courses without attending all of the lectures, Cannon, with a fellow student of the second year class, Albert Moser (Fig. 6), asked Professor Henry Pickering Bowditch (Fig.

Through his friendship and correspondence with scientific leaders such as Juan NegrIn of Spain and Otto Loewi of Austria, Cannon very early saw the rising danger of fascism too. In 1930, while Cannon was serving as an exchange professor in France, he motored with the members of his family to Spain to visit some of his colleagues and former students. At Madrid, the professor of physiology and acting dean of the medical school was Juan NegrIn (Fig.
