German researchers create artificial synapse from nanowire memristor

German scientists have built an artificial synapse from nanowires that is able to replicate functions of biological synapses. The component, which was developed by a team at Forschungszentrum Jülich and RWTH Aachen Universities, has the ability to save and process information and receive numerous signals in parallel, making it suited to bio-inspired “neuromorphic” processors in

KCL scientist uncover how inflammation can affect lifespan of brain cells

Research conducted at King’s College London has revealed how blood inflammation affects the birth and death of brain cells, potentially offering insight for new treatment targets for antidepressants. Mounting evidence points to high levels of inflammation as vital biological abnormality leading to depression in at least one third of patients. Although, the new study offers
