Studied adaptational and trophic role of the sympathetic nervous system. Determined effects of the nervous system on the activity of the skeletal muscles (the “Orbeli-Ginetsinsky phenomenon”). In his series of works on the evolution of the skeletal muscles he studied the role of acetylcholine in the chemical transmission of the nerve impulse and determined the physiological characteristics of the choline receptor substance of the skeletal muscles in its philoontogenetic aspects.
Described ontogenetic features of the oxygen-binding properties of hemoglobin and adaptation to oxygen starvation in antenatal and early postnatal ontogenesis. Studied features of the renal function in the early postnatal period and the evolution of the correlation of nervous and humoral factors in controlling renal activity and in the development of the kidneys. 1950, after the dissolution of Orbeli’s physiological school, his science work was also condemned and he bad to move to Novosibirsk.
1955 returned to Leningrad after Orbeli’s rehabilitation. 1920-1936 Assistant, Physiological Laboratories directed by Academy L. A. Orbeli. 1932-1951 Head, Chair of Physiology, Leningrad Pediatrics Institute.
