Like many of the researchers who were ready and eager to try out their new LINCS, Joseph Hind, a University of Wisconsin neurophysiologist, immediately put LINC to work. In his laboratory, LINC was devoted to physiology of the auditory system, particularly the response of single neurons. Since Hind's background had been in both engineering and neuroscience, he was in a particularly good position to appreciate LINC's advantage over the then-current lab equipment. According to Hind, "LINC revolutionized the practice of neurophysiology. The LINC instruction set was amazingly visionary and far-reaching in its power." Speaking recently, he said, "Even today, machines lack the characteristics of LINC, especially its potential for hands-on control of experiments."
