Occupation Embryologist

Viktor Hamburger (July 9, 1900 – June 12, 2001)[1] was a German professor and embryologist. Hamburger lectured, among others, Nobel Prize-winning neurologist Rita Levi-Montalcini (1909 - ), who identified nerve growth factor along with Hamburger when they collaborated. Hamburger retired from his professor position in 1969 and continued researching until the 1980s.

In the 1960s, Hamburger did embryological work to get at the question of what comes first, sensation or movement, a chicken and egg problem to be sure.
