The Bridge between Visual Input and Central Programming in Crustaceans

  • Talbot H. Waterman


By good fortune, my professional and personal friendship with Kees Wiersma began more than 35 years ago. At the time, I was a graduate student at Harvard engaged in thesis research on neuromuscular transmission in crustaceans. In the summer of 1940, I worked for 3 months in Kees’s lab at Cal Tech. This marked the beginning of our close relationship (Fig. 1).
