Abstract

Following the fourth Council (24th – 28th April, 1924) whose theme was “The electrical conductivity of metals and connected problems”, came the fifth, which opened on 24th October 1927 and whose title was “Electrons and photons”. This was the first Council to which the Germans were re-admitted, and the last to take place at the Institute of Physiology.
