New Memristor Closely Mimics Synapse Signal Dynamics

October 3, 2016

Efforts to emulate signaling produced at nerve cell synapses aren’t new. Many different approaches – CMOS circuits and ‘ionic-drift’ based memristor technology, for example – have been tried, all with various shortcomings. Last week, researchers from UMass, Loughborough University, Hewlett Packard Labs, and Brookhaven National Laboratory reported a new approach that closely mimics the Ca2+ diffusion dynamics that occur at synapses Read more…
