“What we know is a drop, what we don’t know is an ocean. Isaac Newton”. Along with host Davide Coero Borga and his guests to explore main points of scientific knowledge and find out what research is still investigating. On this episode prof. Maurizio Corbetta talks about the brain.
“Brain function relies on circuits of spiking neurons with synapses playing the key role of merging transmission with memory storage and processing. Electronics has made important advances to emulate neurons and synapses and brain-computer interfacing concepts that interlink brain and brain-inspired devices are beginning to materialise. We report on memristive links between brain and silicon spiking neurons that emulate transmission and plasticity properties of real synapses.”
