Developmental History of Physiology
An english physician who, by observing the heart in small animals and fishes, proved experimentally that heart receives and expels blood during each cycle, found valves in the veins and the flow of blood in one direction. He developed the first complete theory of the circulation of blood. He published his observations and interpretations in Exercitatio Anatomica de Motu Cordis et Sanguinis in Animalibus (1628), often abbreviatedDe Motu Cordis.
W. Beaumont (1785-1853)
American frontier doctor who treated Alexis Saint Martin, a nineteen-year-old Canadian trapper accidentally wounded in the stomach. When the wound healed, Beaumont observed that a hole remained in the stomach cavity. He used the opportunity to insert and withdraw various foods after varying periods of time and tabulate the results.
Pavlov, Ivan Petrovich

1993, Glasgow, Integrative Physiology
At present, from gene to function.
We can see, the research levels from whole body, to organs, tissues, cells, organelles, and genes.
