Although Haller had many interests and talents, he was chiefly a physiologist, and one of his greatest contributions to physiology was his demonstration that irritability is a specific property of all muscle tissue and that sensibility is the exclusive property of nervous tissue. (The Primae Lineae Physiologie), first published in 1747, contains many of the ideas that Haller later developed more fully in Elementa physiologiae corporis humani, including his resonance theory, similar to that already advanced by Du Verney and to that of Helmholtz more than one hundred years later." (Eimas & Heirs Hippocrates) Haller was a noted Swiss phyisican, naturalist, botanist and poet who made major and significant contributions to medicine, botany and bibliography for both.
