Abstract : The neurophysiological literature has been surveyed to determine the current state of knowledge on the characteristics of neurons as elements in information-handling systems. An extensive bibliography of over 450 reports bearing on this subject has been appended and abstracts of slightly over 100 papers which were felt to be most relevant to this subject have been prepared for this report. These abstracts together with comments by the present investigators have been compiled into the present report. The scheme of presentation and the general findings are covered in the author's preface. Detailed conclusions are found in the individual abstracts. (Author)
