Molecular Recognition in the Immune and Nervous Systems
My first encounter with the Neurosciences Research Program left me pleased but a bit puzzled. In the fall of 1964 I was invited to come to Boston to tell the members of this group about the latest ideas in immunology, and I still vividly remember my impressions. In a small meeting room I was surrounded by a number of scientists of large reputation in a variety of disciplines, whose attitude was one of joyous receptivity and open questioning. It did not seem to be a very professional group, however, for the tone of the meeting contrasted strongly with the tightly scheduled and somewhat “held-in” atmosphere of the usual specialist societies.
