Congress of Anatomists
At the International Congress of Anatomists held at Ghent, in the Institute of Anatomy, an imposing array of anatomists, histologists, pathologic anatomists and biologists were present. To the large contingent of French anatomists were added distinguished personages from England, the United States, Switzerland and Portugal.The Ghent school was called on to furnish most of the papers, for it was decided at the preceding congress that at coming meetings the opportunity would be seized to familiarize the visitors at the congress with the particular institute where the association held its meetings. The papers, as a whole, reveal the fact that among anatomists there exists a happy tendency to go beyond pure description and seek to discover, under the aspects of form, the physiologic rôle, and at times even the physicochemical interpretation, of anatomic structures.
