The history of the physiological sciences remains a field of investigation open to scholars of different origins and specialties. Recently, historians of science and medicine have paid attention to contemporary disciplines like genetics and molecular biology, immunology and neurobiology. However, physiology, as a mother science, remains a field of considerable historical and epistemological interest, due to its unique wealth of data, interpretations, theoretical models, and especially, its unanswered questions. Scholars interested in the experimental as well as the conceptual and theoretical aspects of the history of the physiological sciences in their broadest sense, and concerned by their place within the national and international frameworks of biomedical research, currently feel the need to meet, exchange ideas, and look for future forms of cooperation. In this spirit, a conference was organised by the Centre Europeen d'Histoire de la Medecine and was held at the Medical School of the University Louis Pasteur in Strasbourg in March 1993. At this conference, we focused on the history of defined disciplines such as neurophysiology and endocrinology, as well as on international approaches to the history of the physiological sciences, in accordance with the research traditions and history of the University of Strasbourg.
