Dr. Donald Hebb - Personally

The theory Dr. Hebb put forward in The Organization of Behavior was one of neural networking. He suggested that two neurons firing together will strengthen the connection and make it easier for the two neurons to illicit a response from the third. In short, "The neurons that fire together, wire together". This had incredible implications for physiology and psychology both, and has recently been used in applications as far-removed from psychology as engineering and computer science.

While Dr. Hebb was an aggressive scientist, he was a gentle father to his two daughters, Mary Ellen, and Jane Paul. He enjoyed reciting poetry and often sang his children to sleep. At the time of his death, Dr. Hebb had been widowed for two years.
