Letter from Bernd Lindemann, Saarland University to Marshall W. Nirenberg
Nirenberg received requests for advice from all over the world throughout his career. Here, Lindmann, from Saarland University
in Germany, informs Nirenberg that he is part of a group of professors interested in electrical membrane properties of neuroepithelial
cells, nueroblasts, and developing nerve cells. He asks for advice on which review articles and original articles would provide
the best summary of the state of the field.

Beyond the Laboratory: Professional, Personal, and Political Life, 1967-2002
Recently our group got interested in electrical membrane properties of neuroepithelial cells, neuroblasts and developing nerve
cells. We were informed that you are working in this field since many years. This is why we should like to ask you to help
us with a first orientation and survey of the literature. In other words: which review articles and original articles would
give us an idea about what is known and what is missing? We are aware of some work on cultured cells but could not so far
find papers on developing cells in situ.
I hope you will find some time to help us in this matter and remain with best personal wishes
