Chapter 2 contains a description of the equipment used to record the pulse of the brain and of other parts of the body. A simple light lever placed on the pulsing part of the brain was subject to too many movements of the head. The recording apparatus used in the experiments developed with the sequence of patients. The form of the cerebral pulse was compared with the pulse of the forearm using Mosso’s hydrosphygmograph.
