Ideas On the Brain by W. Ritchie Russel l, C.B.E., M.D., D.SC.
It is little more than half a century since the microscope revealed that our brains consist of a vast number of separate units-the nerve cells-having a special capacity for interacting with each other by means of processes that have been compared to telephone wires.
