Excerpt from The Critical Review, or Annals of Literature, Vol. 6: Series the Third; September, 1805
The experiments on the temperature of blood seem nearly the same as those formerly made. The experiment to prove the increase of volume ofa contracting muscle, shews nothing. It is impossible to say if the same quantity of muscle were in the vessel, or not, during the contraction and relaxation. There seem strong reasons to think the quantity varied. This question, which we long ago in tended to determine, would be more fairly tried by immers mg in a vessel of water a newly amputated limb, which might be readily made to contract by the galvanic inﬂuence, and the. Change of bulk would be estimated accurately by the help of a tube fitted to theside of the vessel, and turned up. We recommend this experiment to Mr. Carlisle's attention.
