With respect to the embryology of the heart, morphologists, for reasons that are largely methodological, have long been preeminent. In this small volume, a successful attempt to relate function to structure in regard to the embryology of the avian heart is documented.
The author's first publication in this field was in 1924. The essence of his contribution is in the production of high-speed slow-motion color motion pictures of the developing avian heart, together with simultaneous electrocardiographic tracings and frame by frame
