Genetic Versus Neural Information Processing Systems
Marshall Nirenberg gave this lecture at a seminar titled "Genetic, Metabolic, and Developmental Aspects of Mental Retardation,"
held at Howard University in 1969. This talk was Nirenberg's most complete account of his considerations of the neural
code and its relationship to the genetic code. As it includes a number of speculations on the relationship between genetics
and nervous system function, among others, Nirenberg insisted that it not be published.
