Abstract: Studies on the human placenta present great difficulties. Despite these difficulties, research into its physiology has made great strides within receent years. Wislocki and his collaborators were the first to employ successfully histochemical staining methods on the human placenta. The placental physiology of iron, glycogen, fat and proteins has been revealed through this technique. Study of the placenta by this method has shown that, short of infarct formation, there is a decided tendency to premature senility and that at thirty weeks it may have the chemical reactions of a placenta at term.
