Peter Heinrich Schwartze (born 1931) is a German neurophysiologist, systems scientist and cyberneticist well known in the ex-German Democratic Republic. Schwartze graduated the medical University in Leipzig, Germany in 1957 and specialized in Neurophysiology. He studied and worked at the universities of Rostock, Greifswald and Leipzig. He became Doctor Habilitatus of the University Leipzig, Germany in 1968 and Professor of Pathophysiology in 1978 and served as the Director of the Carl Ludwig Institute of Physiology between 1980 and 1992 as successor of Hans Drischel.

Prof. Schwartze also served as member of the East German Parliament between 1980-1990, in the Cultural Association fraction.[1]

Scientific contributions[edit]

Schwartze studied the vestibular apparatus, the air-righting reflex[2] and related spinal reflexes for over 30 years. He published hundreds of scientific reports (mostly in German journals) and a number of scientific and text books on issues of brain development,[3][4] vestibulo-ocular reflexes and cybernetics (see for example [5][6]). He served as vice president of the Society for Experimental Research between 1978 and 81 and also served as member of the editorial board of many journals such as Pediatrics and Related Topics Journal and International Tinnitus Journal.
