Abstract

As a prelude to a VLSl implementation of a biologically-based neuronal oscillator network, the phenomenon of reciprocal inhibition between two cross-connected artificial nerve cells was recreated. Each nerve cell circuit, or Neuromime self-excites, and is inhibited by its counterpart. The network they comprise oscillates by means of postinhibitory rebound, where the synaptic weight of the inhibitory input is dynamically varied. In bench tests, the circuit displayed stable oscillations with periods of up to thirteen seconds.
