The centennial of his birthday (17 March 1881) prompted the publi­ cation of the Selected Works of Walter Rudolf Hess. Although English translation of several of his monographs have appeared, none of his orig­ inal papers has ever been published in the English language. During his sci­ entific career, Hess made pioneering contributions in the field of hemo­ dynamics, pyhsiological optics, oculomotor diagnostics, regulation of cir­ culation, respiration and temperature, and finally on the somatomotor, vis­ ceral, and emotional functions of the diencephalon. His concepts concern­ ing organization and order in physiology and his views on the important role of the vegetative nervous system in regulating the activity of the central ner­ vous system are of great interest to science and medicine and were in many respects far in advance of his time. These concepts continue a line of thought which was upheld by such famous physiologists as Xavier Bichat, Claude Bernard, and Walter B. Cannon. Indeed, Walter Rudolf Hess has become one of the rare figures in the recent history of physiology willing to carry out an integrative analysis of bodily functions and to search for the basic principles of regulation and interaction between regulatory systems. In fact, he anticipated such ideas in biology as feedback control and ser­ vomechanisms long before these notions evolved in the field of engineering and electronics

Bernhard von Gudden (1824 - 1886) war einer der fortschrittlichsten deutschen Psychiater in der zweiten Hälfte des 19. Jahrhunderts. Gudden hat sich frühzeitig für die Einführung des in der englischen Psychiatrie entwickelten "no-restraint"-Prinzips eingesetzt. Mit seinen neuroanatomischen und tierexperimentellen Studien wurde er zum Mitbegründer der modernen Neuromorphologie; das Forschungskonzept der "retrograden Degeneration" beschrieb er zur gleichen Zeit, aber unabhängig von A. Waller. Bernhard von Gudden war Professor für Psychiatrie an den Universitäten in Zürich (1869 - 1872) und München (1872 - 1886). Weit über Fachkreise hinaus wurde sein Name bekannt durch seinen tragischen Tod: zusammen mit dem von ihm begutachteten und betreuten König Ludwig II von Bayern starb er am 13. Juni 1886 im Starnberger See
