NotesFirst separate printing, presentation copy, with Freud's inscription at the head of the front wrapper: "Seinem lieben Freunde, Hernn Chem. Dr. S. Herzig d. Verf." Josef Herzig (1853-1924), professor of chemistry at the University of Vienna, was one of Freud's lifelong friends.
Freud's third paper published as a medical student continued his research on the large Reissner cells in the spinal cord of the fish Petromyzon, which he had undertaken at the direction of the eminent physiologist Ernst Brücke. Freud made a major contribution to evolutionary biology by showing that the spinal ganglion cells of Petromyzon represent a transition between the bipolar cells of lower and the unipolar cells of higher vertebrates.
