Sechenov's theory of cerebral behaviour mechanisms, according to which all conscious and unconscious acts are reflexes in terms of their structures, formed the basis for the later work of Pavlov and Bekhterev.
In 1908 Mechnikov was the joint winner with Paul Ehrlich of the Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine. Having been director of the Bacteriological Institute in Odessa from 1886 to 1887, he was invited in 1888 to go to Paris by Louis Pasteur, who gave him a laboratory where he worked for the last twenty-eight years of his life. The present work, a comprehensive survey of comparative and human immunology, as well as a defence of the theory of phagocystosis, was first published in French in 1901.
