McCulloch, Warren Sturgis
 
 
(b. 1898, Orange, NJ, d. 1972). McCulloch received his M.D. from Columbia University's College of Surgeons and Physicians. He is perhaps best known for "A Logical Calculus Immanent in Nervous Activity", which he co-authored with Walter Pitts. This paper is widely credited with being a seminal contribution to neural network theory, the theory of automata, the theory of computation, and cybernetics.

McCulloch, Warren Sturgis. (b. 1898, Orange, NJ, d. 1972). McCulloch received his M.D. from Columbia University's College of Surgeons and Physicians. He worked at the Laboratory for Neurophysiology at Yale University from 1934 to 1941, before moving to the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Illinois, Chicago. In 1952, he moved to the Research Laboratory for Electronics at MIT. He is perhaps best known for "A Logical Calculus Immanent in Nervous Activity", which he co-authored with Walter Pitts. This paper is widely credited with being a seminal contribution to neural network theory, the theory of automata, the theory of computation, and cybernetics. McCulloch was very active in the cybernetics movement.
