PHYSIOLOGY 
PAKT IL—FUNCTIONS OF MUSCLE AND NEBYE. 
By Dr. MICHAEL FOBÏEB. 
INTRODUCTORY. 
In the following part of this work, the object chiefly kept in view 
has been to limit the directions as much as possible to such 
observations and experiments as the student may be reasonably 
expected to perform for himself under due supervision. The 
ordinary phenomena of muscle and nerve are consequently dealt 
with at far greater length than are the properties of the central 
nervous system. The latter are, to say the least, but im¬ 
perfectly known, the experiments on which our knowledge rests 
difficult and complex, and too often bringing out uncertain 
or even contradictory results. The former, on the other 
hand, may be studied with approximate exactitude ; the methods 
of experiment and observation are becoming year by year more 
physical in character, and the observations themselves, funda¬ 
mental in their nature and having the widest bearings in all the 
higher branches of physiology, may for the most part be con¬ 
ducted on frogs, may be repeated any number of times without 
difficulty or expense, and so serve usefully as a means of 
training students in physiological study and enquiry. The pheno¬ 
mena in question are so fully treated of in various text-books, that 
space in the following chapters has been devoted to detailed 
instructions as to how to proceed in the various observations 
rather than to complete explanations of what the observations are 
intended to show or prove.
