In the Electronic Systems Laboratory at Massachusetts Institute of Technology a digital computer system has been developed for real-time biomedical experimentation. Recently, it has been connected by telephone lines to three Boston hospitals and. the National Institutes of Health in the interest of facilitating the efforts of their investigators in medical research and diagnosis. Currently, the system is being used in the study of a variety of neurological control systems and for the computer diagnosis of clinical electrocardiograms. An important feature of this diagnostic system is teletype control of the computer at M.I.T. by the hospital investigators. This allows them
