Walter Rudolf Hess, a Swiss physiologist, made one of the most significant discoveries of human body by adjudging the role played by the different parts of the brain in determining and coordinating functions of the internal organs. Trained as a surgeon and later an ophthalmologist by profession, all was going well in Walter Rudolf Hess’s career when he suddenly took the big plunge and decided to pursue his love - physiology. In 1912, Hess gave up on his prosperous career as an ophthalmologist and instead went back to the University of Zurich to take up the position of an assistant to Professor Gaule in physiology. In 1930, Hess started mapping the parts of the diencephalon that controlled the internal organs. He realized that on mapping certain regions of the brain, specific physiological responses were seen. From excitement to apathy, hunger to defecation, one could elicit any kind of internal organ response. This research helped him bag the coveted Nobel Prize in Medicine in 1949. Other than his scientific career, Hess served as the professor and Director of the Department of Physiological Institute at the University of Zurich. He was instrumental in establishing the International Foundation for the High Alpine Research Station Jungfraujoch in 1930 and served as its director until 1937.
