'Brain cells and robotics make a connection'
"The neurons grew on the chip and made
connections with the nanowires"
"The axons and dendrites formed more than
50 connections per neuron with the nanowires,
each about the size of a natural synapse.
The researchers were able to watch signals as
they passed down the axon and through the nano
The wiring is static on these chips. As axons are
flexible, what benefit does the flexibility give us?,
and does anyone know of any research into other
materials that might be used as an artificial axon?
