Biography of Hermann Rudolph Aubert
Hermann Aubert studied chiefly in Berlin and was conferred doctor of medicine in 1850. He became Privatdozent of physiology in Breslau 1854, was extraordinary professor from 1862, and in 1865 became full professor of physiology in Rostock. In 1889 he was made Ober-Medicinal-Rath.
Aubert’s first publications concern zoology, among them investigations of the thorax muscles of insects, on aspidogast conchicola, and on gryporhynchus pusillus. He later devoted himself completely to physiology. His late works concern problems of the psychophysics, for instance articles on the conception of movement and orientation. He is also remembered for his German edition of the zoological works of Aristotle, with Wimmer.
