Memristors are continuously tunable resistors that emulate biological synapses. Conceptualized in the 1970s, they traditionally operate by voltage-induced displacements of matter, although the details of the mechanism remain under debate. Purely electronic memristors based on well-established physical phenomena with albeit modest resistance changes have also emerged. Here we demonstrate that voltage-controlled domain configurations in ferroelectric tunnel barriers yield memristive behaviour…

It is shown, using a simple analytical example, that memristance arises naturally in nanoscale systems in which solid-state electronic and ionic transport are coupled under an external bias voltage.
Nanoscale memristor device as synapse in neuromorphic systems.
A nanoscale silicon-based memristor device is experimentally demonstrated and it is shown that a hybrid system composed of complementary metal-oxide semiconductor neurons and Memristor synapses can support important synaptic functions such as spike timing dependent plasticity.

Giant tunnel electroresistance for non-destructive readout of ferroelectric states

Atomic structure of conducting nanofilaments in TiO2 resistive switching memory.
In situ current-voltage and low-temperature conductivity measurements confirm that switching occurs by the formation and disruption of Ti(n)O(2n-1) (or so-called Magnéli phase) filaments, which will provide a foundation for unravelling the full mechanism of resistance switching in oxide thin films.
Memristance can explain Spike-Time-Dependent-Plasticity in Neural Synapses
By combining memristance models with the electrical wave signals of neural impulses converging from pre- and post-synaptic neurons into a synaptic junction, STDP behavior emerges naturally, and provides a direct mean to incorporate STDP learning mechanisms into a new generation of nanotechnology computers employing memristors.
