Eduard Weber

Eduard Friedrich Weber (6 March 1806, Wittenberg – 18 May 1871) was a German anatomist and physiologist. He was a younger brother to physiologist Ernst Heinrich Weber (1795-1878) and physicist Wilhelm Eduard Weber (1804-1891).

He studied medicine at the University of Halle, receiving his doctorate in 1829. From 1836 he served as prosector in the anatomical institute at the University of Leipzig, where in 1838 he became privat-docent with a thesis involving physiological studies on the "galvano-magnetic phenomena" in humans. From 1847 to 1871 he was an associate professor at Leipzig.

He assisted his older brother, Ernst, with experimentation involving the inhibitory power of the vagus nerve.
