Chemical Transfer of Learned Information

  • Georges Ungar


The inclusion of problems related to memory and learning in a volume devoted to protein metabolism in the nervous system is a sign of progress. It shows a readiness to consider the possibility that information may be handled in the nervous system on a chemical principle. This possibility is still meeting considerable, even if steadily declining, opposition, and is in need of some spectacular breakthrough to gain full acceptance.
