Example text

In 1953 Grundfest was summoned to testify before the Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations, chaired by Senator Joseph McCarthy. During World War II, Grundfest, an outspoken radical, had worked on wound healing and nerve regeneration in the Climatic Research Unit of the Signal Laboratories at Fort Monmouth, New Jersey. McCarthy implied that Grundfest had been a Communist sympathizer and that he or his friends had conveyed technical knowledge to the Soviet Union during the war. At the McCarthy hearings, Grundfest testified that he was not a Communist.

GRUNDFEST WAS A LEADER IN THE BIOLOGY OF SIGNALING. From him I learned that thinking about the signaling function of nerve cells has proceeded in four distinct phases, reaching from the eighteenth century to a particularly clear and satisfying resolution in the work of Alan Hodgkin and Andrew Huxley two hundred years later. Throughout, the question of how nerve cells communicate has attracted some of the best brains in science. The first phase dates to 1791, when Luigi Galvani, a biologist from Bologna, Italy, discovered electrical activity in animals.

For example, extension of the leg is invariably accompanied by inhibition of flexion, and flexion of the leg is invariably accompanied by inhibition of extension. Through reciprocal control, inhibitory neurons select among competing reflexes and ensure that only one of two or even several possible responses is expressed as behavior. Integration of reflexes and the decision-making capabilities of the spinal cord and brain derive from the integrative features of individual motor neurons. A motor neuron totals up all the excitatory and inhibitory signals it receives from the other neurons that converge upon it and then carries out an appropriate course of action based on that calculation.
