Date28 February 1905
DescriptionSectional Committee: Physiology

Not recommended for publication in Philosophical Transactions. The results do not justify the wide conclusions drawn from them by the author. The work itself is founded on assumptions which are unproven. The author does not bring forward any experimental evidence to confirm the conclusions drawn from histological observations which in themselves might be susceptible to many other interpretations.
