Vladimir Aleksandrovich Govyrin (Russian: Владѝмир Алекса̀ндрович Говы̀рин, February 22, 1924, Balashov in Saratov region, USSR - February 5, 1994, Saint Petersburg, Russia) was Soviet and Russian physiologist, Academician of Academy of Sciences of USSR and Russian Academy of Sciences, who discovered regularity of the sympathetic innervation of the circulatory system of the vertebrates. He offered the concept of universal participation of vascular nerves in humoral transfer of the sympathetic influence on tissue. He also discovered the method of sympathetic nervous system influences the skeletal muscle. Govyrin found out that sympathetic influences to skeletal tissue are made by catecholamines, emitted by vascular nerves.[1][2]
