This book contains the proceedings of an international symposium held in Washington, DC, which was planned as a sequel to the 1957 symposium on the Reticular Formation of the Brain. In the present symposium, unlike the preceding one, great emphasis is placed on the utilization of mathematical and engineering concepts in neurophysiological investigations. Accordingly, many of the participants discuss in depth the use of data processing programs, computer technology, and mathematical models in the analysis of a variety of topics of neurological interest, including nervous system receptor organ functions, central nervous system (CNS) cellular activities, speech, and certain aspects of behavior.

Among the many interesting papers, one by L. R. Young provides a mathematical description and a physical model of the peripheral apparatus of the vestibular system. W. R. Adey summarizes his investigations of the past few days which indicate a correlation between impedance changes in various parts of the
