There is a great deal of important research on the brain and on living nervous systems in general. Most of this concentrates on a principal viewpoint such as medical, biological, or psychological. Realizing the great importance of obtaining a truly fundamental understanding of the concepts of information processing in living nervous systems (particularly humans) as a bridge between the physical sciences and the behavioral sciences, the California Institute of Technology instigated some years ago a concerted interdisciplinary program on the principles of sensory perception, central cortex activity, and creative thought processes, and their relation to motor activity and general behavior.
