Title Human memory modeled with standard analog and digital circuits : inspiration for man-made computers / John Robert Burger
Published Hoboken, NJ : Wiley, ©2009


Description 1 online resource (xv, 366 pages) : illustrations
Contents Brain behavior points the way -- Neural membranes and animal electricity -- Neural pulses and neural memory -- Circuits and systems for memorization and recall -- Dendritic processing and human learning -- Artificial learning in artificial neural networks -- Asset of reversibility in humans and machines -- Electrically reversible nanoprocessors -- Multiplication, division, and Hamiltonian circuits -- Quantum versus classical computing -- Human brain anatomy -- Psychological science of memory -- Brain scanning -- Biographies of persons of scientific interest
Summary Gain a new perspective on how the brain works and inspires new avenues for design in computer science and engineering. This unique book is the first of its kind to introduce human memory and basic cognition in terms of physical circuits, beginning with the possibilities of ferroelectric behavior of neural membranes, moving to the logical properties of neural pulses recognized as solitons, and finally exploring the architecture of cognition itself. It encourages invention via the methodical study of brain theory, including electrically reversible neurons, neural networks, associative memory sys
Bibliography Includes bibliographical references (pages 359-360) and index
