Principles of energetics and metabolic functions were fashioned and tested by individuals such as Claude Bernard (1813–1878). The clear relationships between muscle structure and function were elucidated by William Bowman (1816–1892) and Albert von Kolliker (1817–1905), among others. Key aspects of the sensory-motor systems of animals were developed from work by Luigi Galvani (1737–1798) in the seventeenth century and expanded upon by Emil du Bois-Reymond (1818–1896), who demonstrated the passage of a change of electrical state as an impulse passes along a neuron, and Francois Magendie (1783–1855), who helped separate the sensory nervous system and the motor nervous system.
