|Title||Paper, 'On the physiology of the embryonic heart (preliminary communication)' by John William Pickering|
|Creator||Pickering; John William (fl 1892)|
|Date||24 November 1892|
|Description||Pickering writes: 'The object of the following experiments has been to study the effect of varying conditions on the heart previous to the development of a nervous mechanism, and thus to throw some light on the discussion as to the relative importance of the two factors in the heart's action, viz., the contractile tissue and the nervous elements. The heart I have used is that of the chick at a period of incubation of seventy-two hours at a temperature of 38°C.'|
