One of our students is studying the early use of electronic computers  
in neurophysiology, and has hit upon a 1967 controversy between  
Experimental/ Analogue and Digital approaches, when DEC LINCs were  
installed. What reading would you recommend on this topic ?
(I remember James Small addressed this controversy in his  
dissertation, some 20 years ago - and so did, more recently, Paul  
Edwards in "The Closed World")

Thanks !
