*See DENNY-BROWN in HAYMAKER-SCHILLER Founders of Neurology, p.270 - '... it was Sherrington who provided the evidence for a one-way transmission at the 'synapse' and the concept of convergence of reflex channels on a 'final common path'. This for the first time provided an explanation for flexibility and adaptation in nervous function. He began with a systematic delineation of the innervation of muscles and skin by the nerve roots, published in three large papers: in 1892, 1894 [actually 1893], and 1898.'
