Ueber Reflexionen von und zum Herzen (Klopfversuch).

Königsb. med. Jb., 3, 271-4, 1862.

Rapidly-repeated blows on the belly of a frog caused cessation of the heart-beat, which Goltz concluded was brought about by reflex inhibition through the vagus, an important contribution to the knowledge of the mechanism of shock.

Beiträge zur Lehre von den Functionen der Nervencentren des Frosches.

Berlin: A. Hirschwald, 1869.

Goltz made important observations on the decerebrate frog. He showed it to possess no volitional powers except after stimulation, no memory and no intelligence. His experiments on frogs deprived of their spinal cords showed them to have intelligence but lessened powers of co-ordination and adaptation.

Der Hund ohne Grosshirn.

Pflüg. Arch. ges. Physiol. 51, 570-614, 1892.

Goltz was able to keep dogs alive for eight months after he had performed subtotal decerebration. He found them incapable of purposive movements but able to walk with adequate co-ordination. Frontal decortication caused restlessness; from his experiments Goltz concluded that the site of integration of pseudo-affective mechanisms is subcortical.
