"Physical structure" Quotes from Famous Books

... there is some likeness between the human embryo and that of the lower animals, still the stages passed through by the two are not the same, being alike only in rough outline, and only in the case of a few of the bodily organs is the series of changes similar. In the case of the physical structure which should be recapitulated most closely, if behavior is to follow the same law,—namely, in that of the brain and nervous system,—there is least evidence of recapitulation. The brain of man does not follow in its development ...
