Title:
Proposal to the System Development Foundation for funds for a theoretical neurobiology group at the Salk Institute
Creator:
Crick, Francis, 1916-2004
Recipient:
System Development Foundation (Palo Alto, Calif.)
Date:
January 1982
Description:
In this grant application, Crick criticized prevailing models of the brain derived from computer science and called for a new theory to explain information processing in the brain, which he hoped to develop by studying the neurobiology of the visual system in humans. The application gives a concise description of Crick's theoretical work in neurobiology at the Salk Institute.
