Created first artificial neurons for the treatment of chronic diseases

Scientists have invented artificial neurons on low-power chips that behave the same way as real. With their help, you can create medical devices for the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease and other neurodegenerative diseases.

For a long time, researchers tried to create synthetic neurons that could interact with the nervous system and provide feedback, as well as natural. However, the development became complicated by the biological peculiarities of their behavior and a nonlinear cell reaction to electric stimuli.

To solve this problem, a team of engineers from the University of Bata amounted to an accurate model and received equations describing their behavior. They then developed silicon microprocessors that imitate biological ion channels and accurately react to various incentives.

Presented artificial neurons consume only 140 NVT energy, which makes them a suitable option for creating bioelectronic implants, which can perform the functions of damaged or dead neurons, which correctly responds to natural requirements in real-time.

During the test, the team was able to accurately reproduce the total dynamics of the neurons of the hippocampus and the respiratory neurons of rats with a wide range of incentives. Currently, researchers are developing smart cardiosimulants that will not only stimulate heartbeat, but respond to changes to the requirements of the body to heart, as it happens in a healthy organ.

Another option of an intelligent pacemaker recently developed scientists from Bristol and Bat Universities, but in their
