Its starting point is the archival discovery of curve images that Helmholtz produced in the context of pathbreaking experiments on the temporality of the nervous system in 1851. With a ""frog drawing machine, "" Helmholtz established the temporal gap between stimulus and response that has remained a core issue in debates between neuroscientists and philosophe." ;
