Studien an Infusorien über Flimmerbewegung, Lokomotion und Reizbeantwortung


    The little book under notice is a record of careful work, chiefly upon the behaviour of Paramcecium caudatum, although the three other species of Paramcecium, Stentor polymorphic, and other Infusoria, figure in some of the experiments. The author has made an especially detailed study of the movements of Paramcecium and of the action of its cilia, and his observations on its morphology are not without interest. He discusses the behaviour of these organisms when operated upon, and also their reactions to narcotics and other chemical Stimuli and to the galvanic current.
