Information Processing in the Nervous System: Proceedings of a Symposium Held at the State University of New York at Buffalo 21st-24th October, 1968 by Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. KG (Paperback, 2013)
In recent years, several symposia have been held on subjects relating to the general themc of information processing in the nervous system. It is w widely recognized that this whole field is rapidly developing and changing in a manner beyond our imaginings of a few years ago. When confronted with conceptual revolutions of this kind, it is justifiable to have a continued on-going discourse and disputation so that there is maximum opportunity for interaction between the leaders of thought in aIl the re- lated disciplines. The conference organized by K. N. Leibovic, and held at the State University of New York at Buffalo from Gctober 21st to 24th, 1968, made a table contribution to this interaction. It is fortunate that there is here being published, t only the papers contributed to the sym- posium, but also much of the stimulating discussion. The term neuronal machinery can be validly used because there is w good understanding of the operational mechanisms of at least some of the neuronal centers in the brain, and our kwledge of these mechanisms is progressing in a most encouraging manner. The stated objective by Prof. Leibovic, the organizer of the symposium, was that it was designed to cor- relate neuronal machinery with psychophysiological phemena. He calls attention to the urgency of achieving a common conceptual basis for neuro- anatomy, neurophysiology, and psychology.
