  • Claude Bernard (1813-1878) was the founder of modern experimental physiology and one of the most famous French scientists of all time. Although he is particularly remem bered today for his concept of the constancy of the internal environment, this idea had no impact in his lifetime. This article considers his achievements and some possible reasons for the delay in understanding his ideas about the internal environment. NEURO SCIENTIST 4:380-385, 1998
