The Conduction of the Nervous Impulse

Nature volume 101, page 163 (02 May 1918) | Download Citation



IN the spring of 1914 Keith Lucas by good fortune was called upon to deliver the Page May memorial lectures at University College, London. He intended to rewrite the lectures for the present monograph, and by July, 1914, had completed eleven of the thirteen chapters. At the outbreak of war he offered his services to the country, and was posted to the Royal Aircraft Factory at Farnborough, where, until he was killed in an aeroplane accident on October 5, 1916, he was fully occupied with problems of flying. The two missing chapters have been written by Mr. Adrian, pupil and fellow-worker, for the most part from the lecture notes.
