It is therefore highly germane to the subject of this symposium in honour of Hans Kornhuber to give special consideration to sensory receptors. Vernon Mountcastle has already commented on Hans Kornhuber’s skills in psycho-physics, and I can extend that comment to include collaborative experiments shared… CONTINUE READING
