Artificial Neurons on a Chip Developed to Treat Chronic Diseases

08:00 EST 4 Dec 2019 | Genetic Engineering News

University of Bath researchers have developed for the first time artificial neurons on silicon chips that behave just like neurons in the body, and which reproduce the electrical properties of real neurons in minute detail. Critically the artificial neurons not only behave just like biological neurons, but require just one-billionth of the power of a microprocessor, making them ideally suited for use in medical implants and other bio-electronic devices.
