This book is intended for beginners in physiological work. It is a book of methods, not a compendium of the science of physiology, and consequently claims a place rather in the laboratory than in the study. But although designed for workers, the authors believe that it will be found not the less useful to those who desire to inform themselves by reading as to the extent to which the science is based on experiment, and as to the nature of the experiments which chiefly deserve to be regarded as fundamental.
The practical purpose of the book has been strictly kept in view, both in the arrangement and in the selection of the subjects. Many subjects are entirely omitted which form important chapters in every text-book. They have been left out either because they do not admit of experimental demonstration, or because the experiments required are of too difficult or complicated a character to be either shown to a class or performed by a beginner.
The mode of arrangement will be found to be somewhat different in the four sections into which the work is divided. This difference, although in part attributable to difference of authorship, is mainly due to the peculiarities of the modes of demonstration required in the several subjects.
As regards the physiology of the nerve and muscle, it is sufficient to refer the reader to the author's introduction for an exposition of the method followed. In the histological part will be found a purely objective description of anatomical facts and methods. Substituting chemical for anatomical, the same thing might be said of the chapters relating to the chemical functions. Here, where minuteness of description is essential, great pains have been taken to give the student the most ample details as regards materials for work, instruments and methods. In the chapter on the blood, the same object has been kept in view, but in those relating to the mechanical functions of circulation and respiration, where either man or the higher animals must be for the most part the subjects of observation, and where consequently the conditions of experiment are complicated by the interference of the nervous system to an extent which it is often difficult to estimate, it has been found impossible to avoid entering somewhat more largely into theoretical explanations.
