Instead, the eventual "shelving" of the project involved the assessment of the possible discovery as not worth pursuing any further, in light of practical necessities for maintaining the lab program with routinely successful findings. Closure was not attributable to a disproof of a hypothetical possibility, since it involved a "turning away from" a possibility for further research in favor of more practical alterna­ tives in the lab's inquiries. II Overall design of the inquiry In the work of the lab as a whole a kind of "overall design" was noticeable.

Date of lesion) #1, 2, 3 (number for rats in that cage) Other tag: Gold B. January 26, 1975 R.

This analytic provision for the occurrence of projects is distinct from a sense of scientific projects as indefinitely extensive courses of work defined by reference to their respective topical pheno­ mena. Such a relation of work to a topic of study (such as axon sprouting) is an observable feature of extensive courses of lab research, but is a separable matter from the practical organization of specific courses of research into projects. In the case discussed here, projects were topically linked to one another sequentially and simultaneously in varieties of ways that will be briefly discussed later in this chapter.
