Hirsch I, p. 730: DSB II, pp. 530 - 32: 'For this program [i.e. the new physical physiology] the eye was an especially suitable subject for investigation. Brücke examined optical media, afterimages, stereoscopic vision, and the reflection of light from the backgrounds of the eyes of vertebrates; he also discovered the ciliary muscle named after him. His "Anatomical Description of the Human Eye (1847)" has become the standard anatomical - histological work for contemporary oculists. His research on luminence in animal eyes and his method of causing luminescence at will in the human eye created the foundation on which Helmholtz continued his work and which led to the invention of the ophthalmoscope in 1851 by the latter': Hirschberg para 1006: 'Dasselbe verdient die höchste Anerkennung, die ihm auch von den Zeitgenossen gewährt worden ist. (Er schrieb dieses Werk am 28sten Jahr) ... Die Beschreibung des Augapfels stellt den damaligen Zustand unseres Wissen da; ist kurz, dabei vollständig, eingehend und von gröszter Klarheit. ... Das Werk ist trotz der ungeheuren Zahl von Arbeiten aus der zweiten Hälfte des 19. Jahrhunderts, dem heutigen Forscher noch unentbehrlich geblieben.': Münchow, p. 576: Gorin, pp. 119/20, 127: Albert, e.a., Source Book, item 328: '1819 - 1892, was a celebrated professor of physiology at the Un. of Vienna, ... whose most important investigations were in physical and physiological optics and color theory.': Becker Coll., item 63.1: 'This treatise, a descriptive anatomy of the human eye, was publ. shortly before Brücke was appointed professor of physiology at the Un. of Königsberg, where he taught ophthalmology during the winter semester of 1848/9.':
