War of the Soups and the Sparks: The Discovery of Neurotransmitters and the Dispute Over How Nerves Communicate
Elliot S. Valenstein (au)
The discovery of how the brainís neurons work is one of the fundamental scientific developments of the 20th cent. The discovery of neurotransmitters revolutionized the way we think about the brain & what it means to be human. This vol. tells the saga of the dispute between the pharmacologists, who had uncovered the first evidence that nerves communicate by releasing chemicals, & the neurophysiologists, who dismissed the evidence & remained committed to electrical explanations. Otto Loewi & Henry Dale received Nobel Prizes for their work, & Walter Cannon would have shared the prize with them if he had not been persuaded to adopt a controversial theory. Sets the scientific discovery against the backdrop of two world wars.
