In this series of lectures, Bernard discusses the activity of cilia and muscles, particularly the electrical stimulation of muscles, nerve stimulation, reflex activity, and the effects of curare on the nerves and musculature. Rabbits and frogs were used extensively in these experiments. Of significant importance is his study of the physiology of the heart and its relationship to the brain. "This volume includes much material on the vasomotor system, the functions of the spinal cord, and other subjects in neurophysiology. There is also an important section on cardiovascular physiology that reflects the interaction of the nervous system and the heart (pp. 423-471)." [Fye]. "The courses that Bernard taught at the Sorbonne were, from their inception, of a more general character. His Leçons sur les propriétés des tissus vivants illustrate these tendencies. In this course, it was Bernard’s aim to ‘determine the elementary conditions of the phenomena of life’" [DSB].
