ABSTRACT
Reports on a technique developed by research team led by Allen Ehrlicher at Germany-based University of Leipzig through which laser-guided nerve cells can help to build artificial neural networks. Reference to an article on the uses of creating artificial nerve networks on chips published in the October 19, 2002 issue of the periodical 'Scientist'; Utility of the technique; Description of the technique.

    We report an approach based upon vertical cavity surface emitting lasers (VCSELs) to reproduce optically different behaviors exhibited by biological neurons but on a much faster timescale. The technique proposed is based on the polarization switching and nonlinear dynamics induced in a single...

    Abstract. A neural network model capable of altering its pattern classifying properties by program input is proposed. Here the "program input" is another source of input besides the pattern input. Unlike most neural network models, this model runs as a deterministic point process of spikes in...

    The cerebral cortex receives input from lower brain regions, and its function is traditionally considered to be processing that input through successive stages to reach an appropriate output. However, the cortical circuit contains many interconnections, including those feeding back from higher...
