Image from Ludwig

For forty years Head of the Physiological Institute in Leipzig, Ludwig trained over 200 physiologists and influenced a whole generation with his views on the applicability of the laws of physics and chemistry to vital processes and his emphasis on the experimental method. This is one of the few studies he published himself, but he is credited with inventing the kymograph and with the original concept of glandular secretion as an active process as well as modern theory of the control of the cardiovascular system.
