Caption: Wigglesworth. Portrait of the British entomologist and physiologist, Sir Vincent Wigglesworth (1899- 1994) in his Cambridge laboratory in the 1950's. Trained in physiology at Cambridge and in medicine at St. Thomas's Hospital in London, Wigglesworth became involved with studies of the South American blood-sucking insect Rhodnius prolixus. His research on this and other insects transformed the fields of entomology and physiology in general. Wigglesworth identified "hormones" which pointed the way to research in other fields; discovered mechanisms of insect metamorphosis and of brain function; and showed how organ secretions control the physiology of living organisms.
