Provenance This computer board also worked with the PDP-11 computer as an interface for magnetic tape.

Dr. Paul MacLean (1913-2007) started as a physician interested in why his patients suffered from symptoms like anxiety and sleeping problems. After research in the brain and behavior, he developed the idea of the "triune" brain, which is that the mammalian brain has evolved with three distinct components: the reptilian brain (hindbrain), the paleomammalian brain (limbic system), and neomammalian brain (neocortex).

In 1957, he joined a new laboratory section at NIMH, the Section on Limbic Integration and Behavior. His primary subject was squirrel monkeys. His triune brain theory became popular after he discussed itin 1969. He expanded his research to other species in 1971, such as reptiles. He also emphasized the female’s role in the evolutionof the brain because of special mammalian behavior. His work on social behavior and connections and brain function was seminal.
