About this book


This volume contains the papers presented during the Neurophysiology Session of the first Orbis Scientiae of the Center for Theoretical Studies, University of Miami, Coral Gables, Florida. With this first Orbis which met from January 7 - 11, 1974, the Center for Theoretical Studies has inaugerated a new set of annual gatherings devoted to the natural sciences and to problems on the "interface" of science and society. The content of the talks presented ranged over a wide variety of topics in neurophysiology, biophysics and biochemistry. A number of the talks concerned various aspects of the brain and its functions. Recent results were also presented on the physics and chemistry of membranes. The papers in the volume are presented in the order in which they were originally delivered. Special thanks are due to Mrs. Helga Billings, Miss Sara Lesser and Mrs. Jacquelyn Zagursky for the typing of the manuscript and for their efficient and cheerful attention to the details of the conference.
