Ball and had been retranslated into French by Gaston Decaisine (Grmek) "Arranged in four parts, the treatise discusses general physiological processes, the techniques and methods used in experimental physiology, physiology of the circulatory system along with experimental phyarmacology, and the physiology of the digestive system."
