*GARRISON-MORTON 1022: 'Pavlov made perhaps the greatest contribution to our knowledge of the physiology of digestion. Especially notable was his method of producing gastric and pancreatic fistulae for the purpose of his experiments.' This title was first published in Russian in 1897, with a second edition in English in 1910. Pavlov was awarded the Nobel Prize for Physiology for this work, in 1904.
