Page 3 - all-or-none" character of nervous activity, neural events and the relations among them can be treated by means of prepositional logic. It is found that the behavior of every net can be described in these terms, with the addition of more complicated logical means for nets containing circles; and that for any logical expression satisfying certain conditions, one can find a net behaving in the fashion it describes.
