Electromedicine, morphogenetic field - Alexander Gurwitsch

Alexander Gavrilovich Gurwitsch (1874-1954), one of the most outstanding biologists of XX century, was in 1918-1924 a Professor of Histology in Taurida University. Right there he made his most important discovery of an ultraweak photon emission from the living systems (which gave rise to the biophotonics) and submitted a first sketch of the morphogenetic field theory.

Electromedicine History - Alexander Gurvich

In 1922, the Russian doctor and histologist Alexander (Gurwitsch) Gurvich (1874-1954) and his wife discovered that living cells separated by quartz glass were able to communicate vital-cell information. Numerous experiments suggested that this information was transmitted by invisible light waves in a UV frequency spectrum passed by quartz and stopped by window glass. Dr. Gurvich coined the phrase "mitogenic" "mitotic" wave since it was observed during enzymatic reactions and mitosis. "Gurvich determined that muscle tissue, cornea, blood and nerves are all transmitters of this special energy." His work is the first documented evidence of "biophotons," coherent light emitted by animal and plant cells, and became the basis for the design of later bioelectromagnetic therapy devices. It was not until the early 1960's that Leningrad State University succeeded in capturing the mitogenic rays with sensitive photomultipliers.
