A WEEKLY NEWSPAPER FOR FACULTY AND STAFF AT THE UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND AT COLLEGE PARK 



APRIL 5, 1993 
VOLUME 7, NUMBER 25 



College Park Responds to Board of Regents' Plan 



The University of Maryland at 
College Park, in a public hearing, pre- 
sented its response to the University 
of Maryland System Board of 
Regents' proposal to consolidate, 
reorganize or discontinue ten aca- 
demic programs currently offered at 
the university. 

Based on an internal evaluation of 
the programs in question, College 
Park officials argued against elimi- 
nating the programs in all ten cases. 
In looking at reorganizing or consoli- 
dating the programs, they asked the 
Regents to accept UMCP's estab- 
lished process for the review of aca-

University representatives also 
stressed in the course of the hearing 
that College Park has already unilat- 
erally eliminated and consolidated 
academic programs, and that those 
cuts should be weighed by the 
Regents as they consider the universi- 
ty's response to the current plan.

plan now under discussion. College 
Park has closed one college {the Col- 
lege of Human Ecology) and has 



eliminated 32 majors in seven aca- 
demic programs as part of an ongo- 
ing process of evaluating academic 
programs. 

The university's response was pre- 
sented by President William E. Kir- 
wan at a public hearing held March 
26 at the University of Maryland Uni- 
versity College Center of Adult Edu- 
cation. Also testifying on behalf of 
College Park were Robert Lissitz, 
chair of the Campus Senate; Patricia

mittee on Staff Affairs; Jennifer Kellv,

NSF Awards Science and Math 
Teaching Grant to UM System 



The National Science Foundation 
(NSF) has selected a consortium of 
Maryland school systems, colleges 
and universities, and scientific 
research institutes to receive a $6 mil- 
lion grant from the NSF Collabora- 
tives for Excellence in Teaching 
Program for a five-year project to 
develop new interdisciplinary 
approaches to the preparation of ele- 
mentary and middle school teachers 
of science and mathematics. 

The winning Maryland proposal 
emphasizes five central themes for 
teacher preparation: (1) Scientific and 
mathematical concepts and reasoning 
methods will be studied in content 
courses that model the practice of 
active teaching and learning; (2) Spe- 
cial field experiences will engage 
prospective teachers in research 



activities of business, industrial, or 
scientific research institutions and the 
informal science education activities 
of science centers, zoos, and muse- 
ums; (3) Teaching methods courses 
and school field experiences will be 
carefully planned to prepare teachers 
who can work effectively with the 
diversity of student abilities, inter- 
ests, and cultural backgrounds found 
in Maryland schools; (4) Pre-service 
teaching experiences will be provided 
in school settings that have been spe- 
cially developed as models of out- 
standing science and mathematics 
teaching; and (5) Design of the pro- 
gram and recruiting of teacher candi- 
dates will aim specifically to increase 
the number of teacher candidates

president of the Student Government 
Association; and Jay Thomas, presi- 
dent of the Graduate Student Associ- 
ation. 

The university's objections to clos- 
ing down the programs are based on 
the quality of the programs and their 
centralitv to the university's mission. 
It was also pointed out that none of 
the programs are offered at an v other 
public institution in the state. 

Likewise, the university's analysis 
found that all ten of the programs tar- 
geted for review are offered bv all 
nine of the institutions nationally that 
have been identified as peer institu- 
tions to College Park. 

"It is thus obvious that these pro- 



grams are not peripheral to the mis- 
sion of the flagship university or the 
land-grant university of the state of 
Maryland," the university comment- 
ed in its written response to the 
Regents. 

In its appeal the university also 
noted that when compared to its nine 
peer institutions, College Park offers 
only about two-thirds of the number 
of degree programs offered by those 
institutions. The findings apply 
about equally to bachelor's, master's 
and doctoral programs. 

College Park officials observed 
that the program evaluations con- 
ducted in response to the Regents' 
plan unveiled last December have 
been intense and inclusive, involving 
academic administrators, students

Deal, their director. The exhibit 
demonstrates how the Outreach Pro- 
gram helps give students and profes- 
sionals advanced photography 
experience while providing a service 
to the community. 

"We have been working on this 
particular project for three years," 
savs Barbara Tyroler, director of the 
Photo Outreach Program. "This is the 
culmination of the grant." 

Deal uses the Dancers and Drum- 
mers project to help Washington, 
D.C. vouth understand African cul- 
ture while giving them self-confi- 
dence to expand their creativity. 

"He goes into the schools a lot to 
tell them about African history, and 



he shows them how to make African 
instruments," Tvroler savs. "These 
kids need a good role model, and he 
enjoys being one." 

In addition to the Maryland exhib- 
it, the Dancers and Drummers will 
also perform at the National Cathe- 
dral, St. Elizabeth's Hospital, and 
Catoctin Park. 

The paintings featured in the 
exhibit are bv Maura Doern, a mem- 
ber of the art faculty and a profes- 
sional painter, in addition, the exhibit

UMCP Smoking Policy and Guidelines 
Approved by the President March 6, 1993 



The university has found that a 
significant percentage of faculty, staff 
and students do not smoke. Smoke is 
offensive to many non-smokers, it is 
harmful and even debilitating to 
some individuals due to their physi- 
cal condition, and there is evidence 
suggesting that passive smoke 
inhalation is harmful to non-smokers. 
In response to the above considera- 
tions, it is hereby established as the 
policy of UMCP to achieve a public 
facility environment as close to 
smoke free as practicably possible. 
Obtaining and maintaining this result 
will require the willingness, under- 
standing, and patience of all mem- 
bers of the campus community. 

It is,the policy of UMCP to follow 
all federal, state, or local laws, regard- 



ing smoking. This smoking policy is 
in addition to any such policies 
which may be in effect. 

Smoking is prohibited in indoor 
locations. Unit heads or their 
designees are responsible for: 1) 
assuring that this policy is communi- 
cated to everyone within their juris- 
diction and to all new members of the 
campus community; 2) implementing 
the policy and guideline and assuring 
that appropriate notice is provided; 
and 3) developing guidelines to 
embrace all special circumstances on 
the campus is impossible. If unit 
heads find circumstances in their 
areas that they believe warrant excep- 
tion from paricular provisions in this

and campus senate representatives. 

During his presentation to the 
Regents, President Kin-van pointed 
out that College Park had identified 
a total i>t $2.9 million in funds avail- 
able for redeployment during the 
next fiscal year alone, exceeding the 
goal under the Regents' three year 
plan of 52.3 million. The funds, he 
said, would come from additional 
program eliminations and selective 
reduction of departments. 

"Obviously the campus can meet 
the Regents' target of 52. 3 million for 
redeployment over the next three 
years as part of the campus' ongoing 
program reviews and reallocation 
process." 

College Park was designated the 
S\ stems flagship campus in l t|S ^ !i \ 
the state legislature. The designation 
was part of that body's commitment 
to provide resources to enhance Col- 
lege Park's stature as a world-class 
major research university with bal- 
ancing emphasis on undergraduate 
education. The Regents' action plan 
now under consideration is part of 
that enhancement in that it calls for a 
reallocation of funds to the priority 
areas within the System as defined 
bv the Regents, one of which is the 
flagship campus. 

President Kirwan told the regents 
that the university's program review 
process also has identified priorities 
within UMCP for use of the rede- 
ployed funds, and concluded with 
the observation that, "We have a 
process [for academic program 
review | in place that works," said 
Kirwan. "If a better system for rede- 
ployment of funds exists in the Unit- 
ed States, I'm unaware of it."

Opera Student Wins Regional Metropolitan Opera Competition 



A College Park student was one of 
a select small group of talented 
voung North American opera singers 
who participated in the 1992-1993 
Metropolitan Opera National Council 
Final Auditions on April 4. 

On Monday, March 15, Angela 
Powell won the audition for the Mid- 
dle Atlantic Region of the National 
Council of the Metropolitan Opera, 
securing for herself a place in the 
national final competition. In addi- 
tion to the coveted audition, Powell 
also received more than $4,500 in 
prize money and study awards. 

Powell is enrolled in the universi- 
ty's voice opera program, a program 
that she believes helped her to win 
the regional competition. 

"Opera is much more than just 
surging/' savs Powell. "I've learned 
other things that count, like where to 
be on stage and how to use body lan- 
guage. I've learned to not just sing, 
but perform," she savs. 

"The program's goal is to prepare 
singers to step into opera roles after 
graduation," explains Leon Major, 



interim chair of the music depart- 
ment at College Park and director of 
the department's opera program. 

In addition to voice and diction 
lessons, the five-semester graduate 
program in voice opera also requires 
a mask class, during which students 
wear full neutral face masks and use 
only their bodies for expression. 

"The body is a tool as valuable as 
anything else," says Major. Move- 
ment and dance classes also hone this 
skill. 

During the combat class students 
learn how to faint, fall, and partici- 
pate in sword and knife fights with- 
out injuring themselves. The 
improvisation class stimulates and 
develops students' imaginations, 
while the scene study classes analyze 
scenes from operas to help students 
discover the characters. There also is 
a Shakespeare class and acting 
lessons. 

Powell arrived in New York a few 
davs prior to the April 4 national 
final auditions to receive coaching 
from Metropolitan Opera staff and to

from groups that have been tradition- 
ally underrepresented in science and

Work of the project consortium 
will involve science, mathematics, 
and education faculty from the Uni-

University of Maryland at Baltimore 
County, Bowie State University, Cop- 
pin State College, University of Mary- 
land at Eastern Shore, Frosthurg State 
University, Morgan State University,

Although approximately 24 opera 
singers competed, anywhere from 
eight to 11 of them will sing in the • 
Winner's Concert on April 18. Win- 
ners receive $10,000. 

"This really is a talent identifica- 
tion and career development pro- 
gram," says Eleanor Forrer, chairman 
of the Middle Atlantic Region of the 
National Council of the Metropolitan 
Opera, who notes that more than 40 
percent of the artists currently on the 
Metropolitan Opera roster participat- 
ed in the audition program. 

In preparation for the final audi- 
tion, Powell said she wouldn't even 
think about the other singers. "I'll 
just go and do my best," she said.

What It's Like To Be A Staff Senator 

Jordan Thomas, Technical Staff Senator, Animal Sciences 




Jordan Thomas 



Forme, 
this was the 
senate at its best- 
taking a stand on 
"larger" issues for 
a constituency that 
historically gets far 
less attention than 
its contribution to 
the institution has 
earned. 



"Standi You've been 

fitting much too twig/ 
There's a permanent 
crease in ymirright- 
attd-ioroHg ... Every- 
body, Stand!" 
— Sli/ ami the Family 
Stone 

When I was asked 
to write about mv 
term in the Campus 
Senate tin conjunc- 
tion with the 
upcoming senate 
staff elections), I rec- 
ognized an opportu- 
nity, not only to use 
a great line from a 
sixties rock song, 
but to encourage, on 
a broad er scale, the staff activism that 
this campus needs to succeed as a 
community. 

The upcoming elections for a 
dozen staff seats in the campus sen- 
ate will have a major impact on the 
degree of that "success" and the defi- 
nition of our "community." The role 
of the non- faculty citizens — staff, 
undergraduate and graduate stu- 
dents — is growing on this campus 
and offers an example to others in the 
University of Maryland System. 

This trend mav continue onlv so 
long as we citizens assert our legiti- 
mate claim to places at the table. But, 
given the respect that Dr. William 
Kirwan has shown for the role of the 
senate in shared governance, new 
staff senators need not focus on the 
long-term and philosphical; they 
should take advantage of the chance 
for direct input on issues that will 
affect our work, our lives, and our 
families. 

Tough Issues 

In recent years, the senate has 
wrestled with the fortv-hour work 
week, program eliminations, campus 
parking, the budget crises, and ele- 
ments of the Mercer study. Obvious- 
ly, we did not "win" on a lot of these 
issues. I hate to lose, so it's difficult 
for me to say that winning isn't 
everything. 

But we wrestled, argued, and pos- 
siblv exchanged some new perspec- 
tives. On some of these, we presented 
a prettv solid front — massive budget 
cuts, forced conversion to 40 hours 
without additional compensation and 
the .Mercer proposal to eliminate 
COLA prompted near-unanimous 
senate opposition. 

Combined with other organiza- 
tions on campus such as AFSCME 
and the Women's Forum, College 
Park produced a strong response that 



was heard, if not always heeded, in 
Annapolis and Ad el phi. Forme, this 
was the senate at its best — taking a 
stand on "larger" issues for a con- 
stituency that historically gets far less 
attention that its contribution to the 
institution has earned. 

Many of the same issues will face 
the next Campus Senate. It we don't 
deal with it one last time before the 
semester ends, campus parking fees 
and fairness will certainly be on the 
agenda next year. The College of 
Agriculture's committee looking at 
current organization and programs 
will probably result in changes for 
the senate to consider. The state's fis- 
cal health and the resulting university* 
budget are sure to cause some heart- 
burn. 

But, if onlv because we at College 
Park have not yet felt its full weight, 
the pay program, and all its details 
that have not been filled in, could be 
the overriding staff issue for the com- 
ing session. The development of job 
descriptions continues, though it is 
acknowledged that our three-year- 
old Position Information Question- 
naires (PIQs) are inaccurate at best, 

On other campuses, the perfor- 
mance evaluation component has 
been in operation for over a year with 
mixed results. There have been sug- 
gestions that one or more institutions 
may be preparing to link the evalua- 
tions with pay, a concept that I 
believe is loaded with too many equi- 
ty and logistical problems to accept 
"on its merit." Staff senators will 
have a chance to play an active part 
in the creation of fair and workable 
processes for defining our jobs, evalu- 
ating our performance, and compen- 
sating our efforts. 

I hope the Campus Senate also 
will pursue further information and 
take a position on proposed "pay for 
performance" programs in the 
Department of Physical Plant that 
drastically change worker rights, ben- 
efits, and compensation. Our role as a 
body, defined in Article 1 of the Plan 
of Organization, includes consulting 
with President Kirwan on "all gener- 
al policv matters pertaining to the 
employment and programs of the , . . 
staffs of the university." 

We clearly need the opportunity to 
evaluate these proposals, not only in 
terms of their impact on the specific 
employees, but for their implications 
for the rest of the campus. Contract- 
ing out or in, privatization, or what- 
ever new jargon mav be created to 
describe it — the possible replacement 
or elimination of our jobs should be a 
high priority concern of the new 
senate. 



The Staff Voice 

Campus employees should not 
depend on the faculty to advocate for 
staff issues in the senate. Sometimes 
it happens. With all due respect to 
my fellow senators, it doesn't happen 
enough. But, in the end, we are the 
appropriate people to be ensuring 
tha t st a f f cone ern s a re voi ced , t ha t 
action is taken. We must stand and be 
activists. 

Senate activism begins with this 
week's nomination of candidates to 
fill 12 vacancies due to term expira- 
tions. The current Plan of Organiza- 
tion limits us to one term followed by 
at least a year off before running 
again. 

Employees can be nominated from 
the following staff categories: Associ- 
ate Staff-Librarians (one seat), Associ- 
ate Staff (two seats), Exempt 
Classified (two seats), Secretarial and 
Clerical (four seats), Service and 
Maintenance (one seat), Skilled Crafts 
(one seat), and Technical Staff (one 
seat). 

Nominations close April 7, so 
speed is of the essence at this point. 
Ballots with candidate statements 
will follow next week. 

To those considering candidacy, 
an active concern for your job, work- 
place, and the university community 
is the main requirement for a seat in 
the senate. You don't have to address 
the body even once during your term, 
though I hope you will because they 
need to hear what you have to say. 
Understanding that the body remains 
dominated numericallv, and usually 
philosophically, by the faculty is use- 
ful, if sometimes frustrating. Willing- 
ness to sit through some of the more 
tedious discussions on the relative 
merits of placing a comma here or 
there is helpful. 

Support from your co-workers 
and supervisors is critically impor- 
tant (in my case, many thanks to 
Denise Beaudoin and Molly Wilson 
for minding the farm in my absence 
and to Drs. Scott Barao, Tom Hart- 
sock, and Dennis Westhoff for their 
flexibility). 

Lastly, to the voters in all the cate- 
gories, 1 urge that you take this elec- 
tion seriously, casting your vote for 
someone you believe will stronglv 
a d v oca te f o r y ou and fight f or y ou r 
share of shared governance. Coming 
events will impact us as a community 
and demand that we respond. While 
the Campus Senate is not the only 
mechanism for answering these chal- 
lenges or improving working condi- 
tions at College Park, it is a valuable 
channel of communication. The peo- 
ple we elect to the senate will have a 
voice that we should not fail to use.

CLOSE-UP 



Crime Scene Cases 

Turn Students into Sleuths 



The body lies face up, the blood 
darkening the carpet under its head. 
The investigators stare down, won- 
dering how this happened and who 
could have possibly done it. 

The students in CCJS 320, "Intro- 
duction to Criminalistics," are learn- 
ing how to investigate crime scenes in 
an unusual way. 

No, they aren't following police 
cars to actual crime scenes, but they 
are learning through experience with 
Crime Scene Cases. 

The cases are six doll house-scaled 
boxes approximately one foot square, 
designed as typical crime scenes 
would appear in different scenarios. 

The boxes were designed by 
Thomas E. Mauriello, who has taught 
the course since he first developed it 
in 1980. He thought of the idea for 
Crime Scene Cases when he observed 
the "Nutshell Crimes" display in the 
State Medical Examiner's office and 
thought it would work well in his 
class. 

The cases were used for the first 
time last semester. There are six dif- 
ferent scenes that the students inves- 
tigate. 

There is a hotel room, where a 
woman lies shot in bed; a dormitory 
room with a rape suspect in hand- 
cuffs; a closed garage containing a 
bodv and a running car; a kitchen 
with a dead bodv and cold breakfast; 
a living room which has been robbed 
and it's owner bludgeoned to death; 
and a convenience store with both a 
dead clerk and a dead robber. 

Students, working in groups of 
four, are presented with a fact sheet 
which provides them with the knowl- 
edge that any investigator on the 
scene would have, including the date, 
whether the person is actually dead, 
and circumstances surrounding the 
death. 

The details in the boxes them- 



selves are painstaking. Doctors Doll- 
house, of Severn a Park, Maryland, 
designed the boxes to Mau Hello's 
specifications. Then he and two for- 
mer students, Frank Mort and John 
Shoemaker, created the scenarios to 
fit the original scenes. 

In the living room scene, the body 
lies on a bloody carpet, near a tamp 
which is stained with blood on both 
the base and the broken glass shade. 
There are unmistakable tool marks on 
the door frame, which illustrate 
forcible entry as well as the broken 
chain lock on the door itself. Foot- 
prints outside, under the window, 
show that the suspect tried unsuc- 
cessfully to enter there first. When 
students look at the bottom of the 
body they can observe post-mortem 
lividity, the settling of blood which 
discolors the skin. In this case the 
lividity is purple, indicating a normal 
death. 

In the dormitory scenario, a sus- 
pect sits in handcuffs in his room. He 
is accused of raping a woman earlier 
in the evening while on a date. His 
pizza sits uneaten on his dresser, beer 
cans are unopen on the table. The 
sheets should be taken for evidence; 
hie was sleeping when the police 
came for him. 

The garage scene is an unsolvable 
puzzle. A woman lies face down, 
either overcome by the carbon 
monoxide or from the gash on her 
head. Her dog is dead on the other 
side of the garage, and a puff of 
exhaust signals the car is still run- 
ning. The bright red lividity of the 
body indicates asphyxia by carbon 
monoxide. Did she kill herself delib- 
erately or did the fall cause her 
demise? The investigators may never 
know. 

The students are evaluated by 
how manv pieces of evidence they 
find, and by what appropriate ques- 





tions thev ask. Mauriello feels that 
the Crime Scene Cases lab, with the 
other labs in the course, are the 
true indicators of how well the 
students are understanding 
what they learn. 

"1 mainly look at this as a 
teaching technique, a way to 
get the information across 
in a manner with which 
the kids have a lot of fun, 
and 1 have the opportuni- 
ty to truly see whether 
the students under- 
stand," Mauriello says. 

The University of 
Maryland, to Mau Hel- 
lo's knowledge, is 
the only university 
using such a tech- 
nique in its crimi- 
nal justice 
curriculum. He 
says it is even 
fairly unusual 
for a university 
to have a crim 
inology labo- 
ratory like 
the one here. 
Mauriello 
plans to share, though. 
He is taking the boxes to Salva 
Regina University in Newport, Rhode 
Island, in April for a two-day 
seminar for the criminal justice 
students there. This is the first 
time the scenes will have trav- 
eled. 

According to Mauriello, his 
students met with "absolute 
success" the first time the 
boxes were used. The lab was 
tested on four sections last 
semester who all handily 
investigated their scenes. 

For Mauriello, however, one 
of the most interesting aspects 
brought a gleam to his eye. " 
As a professional investigator, 
I normally don't get the 
opportunity to stage the crime 
before I investigate it," he says 
with a grin.

Panel to Discuss National Electronic Information Policy 

The Decision and Information Sciences Committee will sponsor a panel discussion on 
Wednesday, April 14, 1993, in the Rouse Room (1412) of the Business and Management 
and Public Affairs Building. There will be a reception art 2:00 p.m., and the discussion will 
last from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m. Panelists will include Jock Gill, director of Electronic Publishing 
and Public Access Electronic Mail for the White House; Danie! C. Michaelis, director of 
Internationa! Standards for Bell Atlantic; and Daniel Weitzner, senior counsel for the Elec- 
tronic Frontier Foundation. To be moderated by Glenn Ricart, director of the Computer 
Science Center, the panel will discuss such issues as copyright/ property rights for elec- 
tronic works, the economic value of information and control of electronic networks. 



Philosopher Wins Grant to Prove the Brain 
was Built to Save Wire 




Seeing the forest for the trees: From the philosophical perspective of 
bounded resources, philosophy professor Christopher Chemiak was 
led to compile 1000 pages of published anatomy drawings of c. eie- 
gans, a microscopic worm, into this single diagram. That diagram, 
which he holds in the photo, is the first depiction of an entire nervous 
system at the level of individual neurons, 

Save wire. That is the "very sim- 
ple rule" which philosophy professor 
Christopher Chemiak is using lately 
to explain why the human brain is 
built the wav it is. 

To explore his wire-saving 
hypothesis Chemiak has just received 
a half million dollar grant from the 
National Institute of Mental Health 
(NIMH). 

Operating from the notion that 
neural messages travel at a limited 
speed, and that there is a limited 
amount of neural wire in the brain, 
Chemiak has arrived at the principle 
which he says "acts like a generative 
grammar for the nervous system": 
Save wire. 

The goal of Chemiak's research is 
to explain the structure of the brain 
through network optimization theo- 
ry, a concept used in computer sci- 
ence to speed the sending of 
messages bv minimizing the distance 
over which they must travel. 

Just as computers have evolved 
from the slow, gigantic mainframes 
of the 50s to today's lightning-speed 
laptops, the human brain evolved to 
process information as quickly as 
possible. Chemiak says that 
microchips and the brain both work 
faster by conserving wire. 

Chemiak tested his wire-saving 
thesis successfully on the nervous 
system of a microscopic worm 
species — a fact which may reveal 
something of the nature of the human 
brain. "This research has the promise 
of making some broad and far reach- 
ing generalizations about nervous 
sy stern organization across species," 
said an NIMH review of Cherniak's 
research. 



NIMH reportedly gave Cherniak's 
proposal one of its highest ratings in 
recent history. "His preliminary find- 
ings indicate that as a philosopher, he 
is playing the important role of point- 
ing out the forest for the trees in neu- 
ruseience- — an area outside his early 
formal training," stated the NIMH 
assessment. 

NIMH may seem like an unusual 
source of funding for a philosopher, 
but Chemiak is an unusual philoso- 
pher. 

Before switching from physiology 
to philosophy as a Harvard under- 
grad, Chemiak spent his young life 
immersed in science fairs, culminat- 
ing in his winning the VVestinghouse 
Science Talent Search in the early 60s. 

With his experience in both the 
hard sciences and humanities, Cher- 
niak despises the "Ford assembly 
line" brand of scholarship which iso- 
lates disciplines from each other. 

His current research is a model ol 
cross-disciplinary scholarship which 
combines philosophical inquiry with 
hard science. 

"This is a College Park story," 
Cherniak savs. "The atmosphere of 
the campus is one that quite genuine- 
ly has a history of encouraging and 
promoting cross-disciplinary 
research," he savs. 

In addition to the Philosophy 
Department, Cherniak has been a 
member of the Institute for Advanced 
Computer Studies and the Commit- 
tee on the History and Philosophy of 
Science. 

Falling under the relatively new 
rubric of cognitive science, the NIMH 
study "starts at the most abstract 
reaches of philosophy and proceeds 
to the most concrete levels of neuro- 
science." 

It began as a philosophical critique 
of the rational actor. For years, Cher- 
niak has argued against what he sees 
as philosophy's great mistaken 
assumption, most evident in game 
theory: that humans have infinite rea- 
soning power. 

Instead, the discipline should rec- 
ognize that real humans — like the 
world itself — have limited resources. 
Cherniak's motto: "We do not have 
God's brain." 

Cherniak has found thai philoso- 
phy is not alone in overestimating 
human mental power. Neuroanato- 
my also often assumes that messages 
in the brain can be relayed instanta- 
neously over an infinite supply of 
wire. 

In actuality, he says, human neural 
messages obey a speed limit of about 
55 miles per hour, which necessitates 
the shortest route possible. 

In the first part of Cherniak's pro- 
ject, he tested his wire saving theory 
on "the only creature on earth for 



which we have complete anatomy," a 
millimeter-long worm called 
caenorhabditis elegans (c, elegans for 
short). 

He tried to determine if c. elegans' 
neural network saves the most wire 
possible. ! le asked, "Does this ani- 
mal have the best of all possible 
brains?" 

To answer that question, philoso- 
pher Cherniak began number crunch- 
ing. Since science had established a 
complete picture of the worm's 
anatomy, Cherniak was able to calcu- 
late the exact number of configura- 
tions possible for the worm's 301) 
nervous cells. He came up with 40 
million possible alternative place- 
ments. 

Next, he ran the 4!) million possi- 
ble placements through "a dozen bot- 
tom-of-the-iine ordinary office 
computers" to see which layout 
required the least wire. After operat- 
ing simultaneously for a week, the 
computers revealed that the worm 
had won. C. elegans' existing neuro- 
anatomy had the shortest possible 
connections. 

"The outcome was that, to quote a 
phrase from Marx (not Groucho), the 
actual is the ideal regarding the neu- 
roanatomy/' Cherniak quips. 

Since the ultimate focus of the 
NIMH grant is the human brain, the 
next task is to prove his hypothesis 
on that most complex neural net- 
work. 

Running the same kind of comput- 
er test on the human cerebral cortex 
would be an impossibly huge task for 
even the most super supercomputer, 
Cherniak says. Therefore, he must 
relv on "a number of indirect tests of 
wiring rules." 

One such test accounts for the 
location of the brain in the unlikeliest 
of locations — the head. Although the 
natural place to put the "the most 
delicate organ" would be in the pro- 
tected recesses behind the rib cage, 
the brain is actually located "as far 
forward as possible" — in the front, or 
head, of the human organism. 

Why? B eca u se I h e re a re ma n y 
more connections at the front than at 
the back of the brain. By counting 
these connections, Cherniak has 
found that locating the brain in the 
head (the "front" of bodv) "saves you 
a lot of wire." 

So far such indirect tests on the 
human anatomy are all consistent 
with the idea "that the anatomy is 
really driven by saving wire. 

"It looks like that's some big hint 
of the way the brain functions," says 
Cherniak. "An enormous and to me 
completely unreadable hint."
