Summary Describes fully delineated biochemical systems, organized as neural network-type assemblies. It explains the relationship between these two apparently unrelated fields, revealing how biochemical systems have the advantage of using the "language" of the physiological processes and, therefore, can be organized into the neural network-type assemblies, much in the way that natural biosystems are
