Three components of a brain model operating on neuromolecular computing principles are described. The first component comprises neurons whose input-output behavior is controlled by significant internal dynamics. Models of discrete enzymatic neurons, reaction-diffusion neurons operating on the basis of the cyclic nucleotide cascade, and neurons controlled by(More)
In this paper, we describe projects that engage Hispanic middle-school age students with computing, and cast these projects within the ECC ("Engagement, Capacity, Continuity") framework. Our projects were undertaken in the Midwestern United States, where recent heavy immigration from Latin America has caused rapid demographic shifts. We have conducted(More)
The authors describe comparatively simple; evolutionary algorithms that can utilize point mutation or crossover operators or both. The algorithms are first tested on two predefined functions of excitase configurations, and their basic strengths and weaknesses are revealed. They are then tested in vivo, coupled with the reaction-diffusion dynamics of the(More)
