Thomas Edison's research on Human Topology

Thomas Alva Edison may be best remembered for his engineering and development work on the light bulb, sound recording, and a perhaps, sneezing. History books seldom devote space to Edison's research on Human Topology. This brief film from 1897 documents some of the Human Topology research performed in Edison's laboratory.

If you have a fairly fast Internet connection, take your choice of these formats for viewing the research:
