An early entrant was Larry. He took Stephen Kuffler’s “Nerve Muscle Program” at Woods Hole in 1966. The name of the course gives the game away: in those early days, the word “neurobiology” had only just been coined by Kuffler. Most of the best work was being done on neurons and skeletal muscle fibers. The revolutionary experiments by Hubel and Wiesel were for the first time opening up the brain, but apart from that marvelous work, there was relatively little being done on the cerebral cortex and its relation to perception. Certainly, there was nothing comparable to the experiments of Hodgkin, Huxley, and Katz, who were carrying cellular neurobiology to a new and exciting level. The Nerve Muscle Program, taught by Kuffler with Ed Furshpan and David Potter, allowed students to do experiments every day with their own hands on modern equipment. At the end, they would be able to set up their own laboratories for measuring the electrical properties of nerve cells. Equally important were intensive critical discussions of the literature. A student would choose a key paper on impulse conduction or synaptic transmission, say by Fatt and Katz, and critically present the data and conclusions. Not Larry.
