About this Item

Katz, Bernard (1911- ). Group of 4 offprints / pamphlets, as listed below. Various sizes. V.p., 1939-52. Two offprints in original wrappers. Very good. First / First Separate Editions. Katz shared the Nobel Prize in physiology or medicine with Ulf von Euler and Julius Axelrod for their discoveries concerning the activation, inactivation, and storage mechanisms of neurotransmitters, chemicals in the body that stimulate nerve and muscle cells. In the 1950s Katz and his colleagues conducted a series of experiments that revealed the precise action of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine, which was known to be the primary chemical that monitors nerve and muscle cell stimulation. They found that acetylcholine was constantly being released in small amounts from the end of neurons. Katz's research served as a foundation for understanding the general workings of the entire nervous system, because the storage, release, and inactivation of acetylcholine was later discovered to be the same for other neurotransmitters. 38175 The relation between force and speed in muscular contraction.
