The book has been written by a team of leading
Soviet authorities in the field of cybernetics,
among them Academicians Yu. Ovchinnikov,
A. Baev, V. Afanasyev, P. Anokhin, A. Migdal,
Yu. Gulyaev.

The contributors discuss the latest achievements
in biology from the viewpoint of cybernetics,
describe multiple functions that constitute
living matter, the basis of brain reliability, the
psychics modeling limits, and the mathematical
methods in psychology. Also, they examine

the problems relating to life and age, death and
immortality, and the experimental ways of
making life longer. 
The book will undoubtedly be of interest to all
those interested in, or concerned with,
cybernetics or allied fields.

The book was translated from the Russian by Vitaly Kisin and compiled by V. D. Pekelis and edited by I. M. Makarov.
