In 1930 he obtains a Guggenheim Scholarship and moves to Harvard University, to the department of Physiology, then directed by Walter Cannon. In 1934 he worked with Cannon on issues related with Chemical transmission among nervous elements. Between 1931 and 1945 he worked with several specialists, among them Cannon, del Pozo, H.G. Schwartz, and Wiener, the last of whom he wrote with "Behavior, Purpose and Teleology", which, according to Wiener himself, set the bases for the new science of Cybernetics. Between 1947 and 1949, and again between 1951 and 1952, under grants of Rockefeller Foundation he continued his work along side Wiener.

One of the first indications of the new science which was to develop occurs in this paper with the sentence "The broad classes of behaviour are the same in machines and in living organisms" followed by "While the behaviouristic analysis of machines and living organisms is largely uniform, their functional study reveals deep differences".
Rosenblueth and Wiener had kept before them the idea of a research program which would use the efforts of many different kinds of scientist to attack subject matter left out by the traditional division of labour.
