1 edition published in 1968 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The original film was produced by Ivan Pavlov in 1932 for a showing at the 14th International Conference on Physiology held in Rome. Following the presentation, Pavlov gave the film to Carlo Foa, Professor and Chair of the Department of Physiology at the University of Milano Medical School to be used in his class. In 1968, the film was copied to 16 mm. safety film because the original was made of nitrate and too unstable to be maintained. The original was destroyed for safety reasons. The film shows experiments using frogs, dogs, monkeys, various other animals and children. Further, it demonstrates child development at different ages beginning with a newborn. The film also shows what happens when a bullet damages the brain and if a person was born with an undeveloped brain
