A description of the electronic digital simulation aspects of the computer programming system used in the study of general neural nets presented in RM-3406-PR, "A General Neural Net." The system, called NETI, allows investigators to construct nets, maintain files of nets, and compose and execute preplanned programs of experimentation on nets. Such experimental programs may effect repeated simulations of a single net or collection of nets with intersimulation variation of net components, parameters, and stimuli, and may interrogate, test, and vary such elements within an individual simulation.
