Johannes Peter Müller

Koblenz 1801 - Berlin 1858

Among the founders of modern physiology, after studying in Berlin, he became assistant professor of K.A. Rudolphi at the University of Berlin (1823). The following year he qualified for university teaching and in 1833 he replaced the same Rudolphi. His Handbuch der Physiologie des Menschen is very important. In it he formulated the law of the specific energy of the senses, drawn up again later by H. von Helmholtz. Besides von Helmholtz, other notable scholars among his students were: E. Du-Bois Reymond, R. Virkow, E. Hackel, T. Schwann.
