- UniversityOld physics and physiology equipment
Studying the nature of things, through experiment, whether the objects of the study be inanimate or animate, is a passion that physicists and physiologists share. The special characteristics of the functioning of human being incite biologists to turn into physicists if necessary. In return, physicists have provided physiologists with equipment such as the spectroscope, which enables the various states of haemoglobin to be studied, an experiment carried out by Claude Bernard during his famous Lessons.
