Chapter Summary

Rademaker was nominated as successor of the Nobel laureate Einthoven (ECG) in Leiden, for the chair of Physiology. During his early years as professor of Physiology in Leiden, he completed his monograph ?Das Stehen? [Standing], which summarized the results of his extensive programme of experiments and parts of his clinical work (1931). The author would like to make a plea for wider use of the three eponyms?the Rademaker-Garcin blink reflex, the Rademaker-Garcin support reaction and the Rademaker-Garcin test of static adaptation?in the Anglo-Saxon neurological literature in honour of the almost unique combination of skills in the field of experimental physiology and deep, wide-ranging clinical experience displayed by these two researchers and in view of the continued clinical relevance of the three eponymous signs as reflected in the frequency with which they are still cited in the literature.

Keywords: blink reflex; Das Stehen; eponymous; Leiden; monograph; Nobel laureate Einthoven (ECG); physiology; Rademaker; support reaction; test of static adaptation
