That the dynamic factor in regeneration is not primarily the outcome of physiological movements of the animal, or of its parts, is made probable not only by many facts familiar to every student of regeneration, facts that show that the new part often develops under conditions where movement or function in this sense is absent, but also by the important experiments of Zeleny and of Stockard with the jelly-fish Cassiope. They have shown that when one half of the disc is brought to rest by removing the sense organs (and scratching a barrier zone across the connecting ectoderm) the quiescent half regenerates as well and as rapidly as the half left pulsating during the period of regeneration.
