Abstract

Our object in taking up this work has been twofold; first, to reproduce for the benefit of students, in their study of tissue-growth and the early development of the embryo, graphic pictures of the changes that these tissues undergo; and, second, to reproduce for study such movements as are not readily followed by the eye; such, for example, as the rapidly beating embryonic heart or the exceedingly slow movements incident to the growth of tissue and cell division. From the results thus far obtained, we feel warranted in assuming that the method about to be described of adapting the cinematograph to the microscope, for the purposes of photomicrography, is at least practical and capable of much further elaboration. The embryos as well as the tissues used in these experiments were those of the chick, the pictures being taken in different stages of development.
