Through the decades and from many quarters of the world, investigators have confirmed the evidence and conclusions reported by the Harvard group. In spite of confirmation, however, for years an impression persisted that because conditional control of adrenal secretion was once in question, it continued to be in question. 7. B. Cannon The Way of an Investigator, pp 100-101. 31 Fig. 14. Gijran Li1jestrand (1886-1968). In fact, the misguided and acrimonious criticisms of Stewart and Rogoff, and the ensuing public controversy, may have been a major factor in the negative decisions of the Nobel Prize Committee regarding Cannon's nominations in the years 1921, 1928 and 1932.

I coined the term Dale's Principle. He was a little coy about the term, but never forbade it, and we continued in an even more friendly relationship, as can be recognized from his letters. Of course, the phrase chemical transmitter mechanism covers the recent discovery of mUltiple transmitter substances. Fig. 15 displays a simple diagram by Swanson that shows Dale's Principle with two different transmitters. As illustrated in Fig. 16 there are two great classes of neurones in the central nervous system, those working by excitatory synapses and those by inhibitory synapses, and there are no ambivalent neurones.

9. Daniel de la Paz. 27 Fig. 10. Joseph E. Uridil (1891-1954). Fig. 11. Sir Henry Hallett Dale (1875-1968). 28 Cannon, assisted by Daniel de la Paz (Fig. 9), a native of the Philippines, and Cannon's first foreign fellow, began a series of studies on adrenaline released from the adrenal glands into the vena cava during stress. In 1911 they published their paper on "The emotional stimulation of adrenal secretion" (Cannon and de la Paz, 1911). This was the first of a series of publications that led to Cannon's elaboration of the emergency function of the sympathetic nervous system and the development of his concepts on chemical transmission.
