Abstract

The problems associated with the transfer of data from one computer to another in conducting neuropsychological research are described. The reasons for using different computers to perform different tasks are outlined, and a rationale for using task-specific computers is presented. A detailed description of the use and function of the Kermit File Transfer Protocol in neuropsychological research is given.
