Photographer's Note

One of the first Russian Nobel prizers, and certainly one of the most famous of them, Academic Ivan Pavlov was a really quite brilliant man. He was one of the founders of Neurophysiology and Neurobiology, and his experiments on dogs bring him fame, and the proverb "Pavlov's Dog" become widely known.
***
So here is the Tower of Silence, special building in Institute of Experimental Medicine, in which dogs were kept in a conditions of total silence during the experiments on the sensour systems. Bulding was made in 1913-1917 with the use of special technologies to make it sound-proof.
***
Have to be noted, as well, that Pavlov was very humanistic towards his dogs and tried to do his experiments with as little hurt and pain to animal as possible.
