*GARRISON-MORTON #661 - 'A classical work on muscle tone and posture, a subject upon which Magnus spent many years of study. He demonstrated among other things that the labyrinth is the one sense organ entirely concerned with posture and equilibrium.' HEIRS OF HIPPOCRATES #1173 - 'Magnus, a German, was a gifted pupil and co-worker of Sir Charles Sherrington at Liverpool. Later..... he became one of the most productive neurophysiologists of the first quarter of the twentieth century. In this monumental work on body posture, Magnus summarizes his eztensive observations and experiments on the functions of the otolith organs, the nature of postural and neck reflexes, and the balancing reactions of the tonic labyrinthine reflexes.'
