Novel circuit attempts to mimic neuron function

from the synapse-crackle-pop dept.
An interdisciplinary team that includes electrical engineers, computer scientists, physicists and neuroscientists is using a hybrid analog-digital circuit design in an attempt to understand how biological neurons function and process information. A brief description of the research appeared in the New York Times on 29 June 2000, and was described in greater detail in a paper that appeared in the 22 June 2000 issue of the journal Nature.
