Abstract

Using conventional integrated circuit technology, a microchip may be fabricated that can faithfully and efficiently mimic the behavior of neurons. The compactness, reliability, convenience, and economy afforded by such a technology make this neuromime well suited to a number of interesting applications. A comprehensive circuit design allows a wide variety of neuronal characteristics to be simulated, affording the greatest possible flexibility in the design and construction of neuronal circuits. In addition to simulating threshold effects, fatigue accommodation, and facilitation, the neuromime can readily interface to virtually any neurological signal source or electronic device. Able to communicate on both TTL and biological levels, it may transmit and interpret action potentials and conventional digital logic pulses.
