Excerpt from The Homeopathic Journal of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Pedology, 1894, Vol. 16
The 'foregoing remarks are intended to be preliminary, and by them we can understand the law of development that has received such brilliant illustration through Von Gudden's experiments. Von Gudden took young animals at the time of birth and extirpated some peripheral organ or part. The animals were allowed to grow to the adult period and then, being killed, their nervous systems were examined, by comparing the two sides. In this way a great deal was learned of the anatomical position of certain fiber tracts. But the experiments taught more than this. They taught a great physiological law, that development of a tract depends upon its being called into activity.
