The present essay concisely analyses the contemporary neurobiological debate concerning the hypothesis of the "temporal correlation" advanced to solve the perceptual problem of linking different features in a unitary object or visual scene. Although fascinating and grounded on simulations and brain models, in addition to important electrophysiological(More)
This article aims at illustrating the historical circumstances that led Julius Bernstein in 1902 to formulate a membrane theory on resting current in muscle and nerve fibers. It was a truly paradigm shift in research into bioelectrical phenomena, if qualified by the observation that, besides Bernstein, many other electrophysiologists between 1890 and 1902(More)

This paper aims at describing the revolution in sensorial physiology resulting from the introduction of electrical recording instruments such as the string galvanometer and especially the capillary electrometer by Edgar Douglas Adrian in Cambridge. The contributions in the field of vacuum-tube methods completed the development and the progress in the(More)
