Adelbert Ames, Jr. (1880-1955) was an American scientist who made contributions to physics, physiology, ophthalmology, psychology, and philosophy. He pioneered the study of physiological optics at Dartmouth College, serving as a research professor, then as director of research in the Dartmouth Eye Institute. He conducted important research into aspects of binocular vision, including cyclophoria and aniseikonia. Ames is perhaps best known for constructing some illusions of visual perception: the Ames room, the Ames window, and the Ames chair. He was a leading light in the Transactionalist School of psychology, also making contributions in social psychology. ...more on Wikipedia about "Adelbert Ames, Jr."

Dr. Donald Metcalf AO AC FRS (b. February 26, 1929) is an Australian physiologist. Metcalf's pioneering research revealed the control of blood cell formation and the role of hematopoietic cytokines. He described the function of the thymus gland in the control of lymphocyte formation. In the 1960s he developed techniques to culture blood cells, which led to the discovery of colony-stimulating factors (CSFs). CSFs are hormones that control white blood cell formation and are responsible for resistance to infection. ...more on Wikipedia about "Donald Metcalf"
Earl Wilbur Sutherland Jr. ( November 19, 1915 – March 9, 1974) was a U.S. physiologist. Dr. Sutherland was born on November 19, 1915 in Burlingame, Kansas. He won a Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 1971 "for his discoveries concerning the mechanisms of the action of hormones," especially epinephrine, via second messengers (such as cyclic adenosine monophosphate). He received his bachelor's degree (Chemistry) in 1937 from Washburn University, Topeka, Kansas and earned his medical degree in 1942 from Washington University Medical School in St. Louis. After serving as a doctor in World War II, he returned to Washington University as a researcher in the laboratory of Nobel laureate Carl Ferdinand Cori. In 1953, he became director of the department of medicine at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio, where he discovered cyclic AMP. In 1963, desiring to limit his duties to research, Sutherland moved to Vanderbilt University School of Medicine in Nashville where he was a professor of physiology until 1973. He was elected to the National Academy of Sciences in 1966, won the Albert Lasker Award for basic medical research in 1970, and received the National Medal of Science in 1973. At the time of his death in 1974, Sutherland was a distinguished professor of biochemistry at University of Miami Medical School. ...more on Wikipedia about "Earl Wilbur Sutherland Jr."

Eugene Aserinsky ( 1921 – 1998) was a graduate student at University of Chicago in 1953 when he discovered REM sleep. He made the discovery after hours spent studying the eyelids of sleeping subjects. His PhD adviser, Nathaniel Kleitman, and Aserinsky went on to demonstrate demonstrate that this "rapid-eye movement" was correlated with dreaming and a general increase in brain activity. They pioneered procedures that have now been used with thousands of volunteers using the electroencephalograph. Because of these discoveries, Aserinsky and Kleitman are generally considered the founders of modern sleep research. ...more on Wikipedia about "Eugene Aserinsky"
