DateMay 1940
DescriptionSectional committee: Physiology

Recommended for publication in Proceedings. There is no mention of the work of D A Ross, who's conclusions were very similar to the authors. This referecne should be added, to avoid the perception that the authors don't want to give credit to a previous worker in the subject.
