Example text

Later, a Cambridge physician, Francis Glisson (1597–1677), challenged the concept that nerves conveyed a “spirit” to muscles which inflated them during contraction. He proved his point by demonstrating that no water displacement took place when a forceful underwater contractile effort was made. In addition, he reported that muscle fibers had the property of irritability, which was later “rediscovered” and made famous by Albrecht Haller (47). A Danish physician, Niels Stensen (1638–1686), noted that skeletal muscle fibers contract in a geometric manner, which decreased their length while increasing their width (47).

Harvey’s epic investigation established that cardiac output and its distribution to the periphery had the capacity to increase, was dependent on the “strength of the pulse,” and indicated that “the heart makes more than a thousand beats in a half hour in some two, three, or even four thousand” (72). While at Oxford University, Richard Lower (1631–1693) championed the findings of Harvey and declared in his 1669 publication (73), the heart to be a muscle (as had Harvey, Stensen, and Leonardo da Vinci).

In a 1915 study by C. S. Williamson that carefully considered the phase of respiration when the photographs (teleroentgens) were taken immediately after the cessation of “severe exercise” (running up and down stairs), 88% of the subjects exhibited decreases (132).
