Why Is Charles Scott Sherrington Influential?

(Suggest an Edit or Addition)

According to Wikipedia, Sir Charles Scott Sherrington was an eminent English neurophysiologist. His experimental research established many aspects of contemporary neuroscience, including the concept of the spinal reflex as a system involving connected neurons , and the ways in which signal transmission between neurons can be potentiated or depotentiated. Sherrington himself coined the word "synapse" to define the connection between two neurons. His book The Integrative Action of the Nervous System is a synthesis of this work, in recognition of which he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 1932 .
