What could one discern about the system if one struck it sufficiently violently with an electrical hammer? We have moved away from that type of electrical stimulation of brain tissue where some motor end point or an evoked potential was the expected outcome of the experiment. Rather, we are looking at the individual in his conscious, unrestrained and performing state. My assignment is to discuss such studies briefly, with reference to the application of the computer as a tool in the analysis of the very complex data that come from brain systems.
