View all copies of this ISBN edition:

Marshall Hall trained as a physician at the University of Edinburgh Medical School in the early nineteenth century. Believing that future progress in medicine lay in the applications of science, he came to specialize in the nervous system and in particular in the concept of reflex action. A superb experimentalist, Hall strove to establish experimental medicine (physiology) as the new basis of the medical curriculum, and to elevate it above anatomy. He was involved in several controversies, particularly within the Royal Society where he suffered at the hands of the Physiological Committee. At the end of his life Hall addressed a range of contemporary social and public-health issues.
