Title:
Pages from Nirenberg's laboratory journal titled "Genetic vs. Neural Codes"
Description:
In 1968, Marshall Nirenberg compared the genetic code to the neural code. These pages from his laboratory journal give detailed examples of his thought process when considering the two codes. Nirenberg writes about the logic, generalizations, and universal aspects of the codes. He also considers the biological basis of memory, the prospect of other codes, and the calculations necessary to predict the number of synapses in the brain.
