An analog circuit capable of accurately emulating large complex cells, or multiple less complex ones is described. This circuit is termed the FPNA or the field programmable neural array. It is analogous to the more familiar FPGA, but is composed of biologically relevant circuit components including active channels, dendrites, and synapses. Taking each of these circuit models, and adding a routing structure capable of routing outputs from cells (or external inputs) to any individual synapse at… Expand
