This book is one of the series of Manuals for Students issued during the past year by the well known publishers. It is intended as a companion to the student of physiology in his practical work in the laboratory. The first part is devoted to a consideration and explanation of the applications of Electricity and Magnetism to physiology and medicine, and embraces 148 pages. In the second part the Graphic Method is described, showing how small intervals of time are measured, explaining the myographion, and the transmission of movement. The third part is concerned with Fluids, at rest and in motion, and the Mechanics of the Circulation; Pneumatics are explained in part IV; Optics in the fifth part; and Sound, Heat and Dynamics in the sixth, seventh and eighth parts. The illustrations are almost entirely of the necessary apparatus for the physiological laboratory, and, considering their diminutive size, are good.
