Scope and content
106-156: Early research (1935-1939)
157-308: Various topics (1942-1991). A small amount of material relating to Hodgkin's work during World War II is included at C/157.
308A-1120: Later experiments and theory (1960-1988). Much of this material was found organised in a rough chronological sequence. It chiefly consists of experimental data (manuscript and computer-generated), calculations and theoretical notes. A large proportion of the experiments are on vision.
1122-1127: 'Circuits' (1939-1960). Contents of a box so inscribed. The material appears to be chiefly c 1945 and to relate to Hodgkin's work in designing electrical circuits. It appears to cover some of his later wartime work on airborne radar at the Telecommunications Research Establishment (TRE) 1940-1945, and work on the nerve impulse, which he resumed with A. F. Huxley in 1946. It is probable that some of the circuit diagrams represent Hodgkin's preparations for the resumption of the nerve impulse research.
