Caption: Paul Bert (1833-1886). 1892 illustration of the French doctor, physiologist and politician Paul Bert. Bert is sometimes called the Father of Aviation Medicine. His work 'La Pression barometrique' (1878), is a comprehensive investigation on the physiological effects of air-pressure on the human body. The idea of central nervous system oxygen toxicity was first described in this publication and is sometimes referred to as the 'Paul Bert effect'. However, his book 'La Deuxieme annee d'enseignement scientifique' (1896) claimed that White people were far superior and more intelligent than Black and Chinese people, following the popular white supremacist, aryan supremacist, unfounded theories later used by the nazis.
