A user-oriented time-shared online system


An existing system and planned additions within the Data Processing Laboratory of the Brain Research Institute at UCLA is described. The system represents an attempt to provide research workers of the Institute with the ability to interact directly with a highly sophisticated digital computing complex in the most direct and simple fashion possible. It is anticipated that, with the accumulation of experience using the present system, significant advances will be possible in the system design through determination of interface parameters between the biological scientist and the digital computer.
