Artificial ‘neurotransistor’ created

Science Daily  July 14, 2020
An international team of researchers (Germany, India, South Korea, USA – UC Berkeley) simulated the properties of neurons using the principles of biosensors and modified a classical field-effect transistor to create an artificial neurotransistor. They applied solgel to a conventional silicon wafer with circuits. When solgel hardens and becomes a porous ceramic the ions move between the holes. As they are heavier than electrons and slower to return to their position after excitation, hysteresis causes the storage effect. The plasticity of the neurotransistor, which is similar to that of the human brain, enables them to adapt to changing tasks during operation and, thus, solve problems for which they were not originally programmed…read more.
