This website was created in Adobe Dreamweaver CS3. The neuron navigation menu and general design were created by Katie, as was the section on fractals. Credit for the color scheme and information on neural networks and artificial intellegence goes to Meera. The history section was done by Ingo. Timm[ie] created the boids and game of life pages.

We are two Stanford students and two Oxford students, participents in Stanford's Sophomore College program, 2008. We very much appreciate our Professor, Eric Roberts, and our SCAs, Sarah Spikes and Ilya Sherman. Additionally the Oxford students would like to thank Kathleen Lavidge for her support.
