Page 293 - Twenty cubic centimetres of the oxalatedor defibrinated blood, thoroughly saturated with air by swinging it round in a large flask, are measured out from a pipette into the bottle A, which has a capacity of about 120 cc As it is important to avoid blowing expired air into the bottle the last drops of blood are expelled from the pipette by closing the top and warming the bulb with the hand.
Page 459 - The conclusion derived from his experiments is that " there is no essential difference in the course or nature of the metabolism either during fasting or after feeding with the ordinary proteids of flesh, with vegetable food such as oatmeal, or with food rich in nucleins, such as thymus. There is a more rapid excretion of water after a meal, probably indicating a more rapid absorption.
Page 79 - Another musician reported that "the effect of the sound of the piano was most curious and delightful... the whole air being filled with music, each note of which seemed to arrange around itself a medley of other notes which appeared to me to be surrounded by a halo of color pulsating to the music.
Page 204 - The expenses involved in this research have been defrayed by a grant from the Government Grant Committee of the Royal Society. t 'Phvsiol. Soc. Proc.,' March 20, 1897;
Page 63 - In support of this he states that if the thoracic lymph from a fasting dog is injected into the portal circulation of a cat, no hyperglycaemia, or glycosuria, results ; but that if the lymph from a dog during digestion is similarly injected, a hyperglycaemia, varying from 0-3 to 0-9 per cent., and a glycosuria, varying from I/O to 9-0 per cent., are produced.
Page 166 - ... 108 by addition of bile. Increased proteolysis, however, is certainly induced many times by the addition of bile, and it is somewhat noticeable that this increase is obtained more frequently in the presence of large percentages — 10-25 per cent — than in the presence of smaller amounts. Still, in no one of our experiments do we find a confirmation of the results reported by Rachford and Southgate, who found on an average " that the proteolytic action of pancreatic juice on neutral fibrin...
Page 294 - M nearly as possible that of the room and of the blood and water in the bottle. If the stopper is not heavy enough to sink the bottle the latter should be weighted. By opening to the outside the three-way tap (or T-tube and clip) on the burette, and raising the levelling tube, which is held by a spring clamp, the water in the burette is brought to a level close to the top. The tap is then closed to the outside, and the reading of the burette (which is graduated to -05 cc, and may be read to -01 cc)...
Page 295 - ... operation is richer in oxygen than at the beginning, so that, as oxygen is about twice as soluble as nitrogen, slightly more gas will be in solution. With a bottle of 1 20 cc capacity and 20 per cent, of oxygen in the blood, the air in the bottle at the end will evidently contain about 27 per cent, of oxygen, so that, assuming that the coefficients of absorption of oxygen and nitrogen in the 54 cc of liquid within the bottle are nearly the same as in water, the correction will amount at 15...
Page 78 - ... occasion giving the impression that the ground sloped away in all directions. Perception may be considerably delayed; for example, one may look at a person one knows well, and it is only after scanning his features for what appears to the experimenter a considerable time, that recognition occurs;10 it is possible, however, that this may be explained by the increased timerelation. The attention cannot be fixed, as the least stimulus is sufficient to alter the train of thought; thus it was found...
Page 45 - by an increase in the quantity of oxygen absorbed and of carbonic acid eliminated by the animal, the two being increased pari passu, BO that the respiratory quotient, as a rule, was not altered.
