A syncoder is an electronic model of some of the information processing properties of nerve cells. This report describes the equations of operation of a single syncoder and serves as an instruction manual for the programming and operation of a network simulator containing 10 syncoders. The network simulator, called 'Root C,' also contains a patch panel, voltage sources, a meter and the necessary input-output lines to permit the simulation of small networks of syncoders. An appendix contains a complete circuit description of a single syncoder.
