Just like something straight out of the movies a team at the MIT Division of Health Sciences and Technology labs have unveiled a new chip that can mimic the way the human brain responds when processing information.
The new silicon chip is equipped with 400 transistors that enable it to stimulate the motion of two neutrons in a brain, allowing them to connect and pass information to each other and is able to remember it.
The team of researchers anticipate this chip will aid neuroscientists learn much more about how the brain works, and could also be used in neural prosthetic devices such as artificial retinas, explains Chi-Sang Poon, a principal research scientist in the team.
