Recently, it was shown that the amoebalike cell Physarum polycephalum when exposed to a pattern of periodic environmental changes learns and adapts its behavior in anticipation of the next stimulus to come. Here we show that such behavior can be mapped into the response of a simple electronic circuit consisting of a LC contour and a memory-resistor (a memristor) to a train of voltage pulses that mimic environment changes. We also identify a possible biological origin of the memristive behavior… Expand

Are paradoxes of amoeboid cognition, memristors, and memory mandating a re-conceptualization of actions and behaviors?
TLDR
It is proposed that 'resonating actions' - that is, similar or interlinked behaviors beyond space and time - are enabled by an underlying field of potentiation or domain of influence, and not by a cause-effect relationship. Expand
Slime Mould Memristors
TLDR
It is demonstrated that protoplasmic tubes of the acellular slime mould Physarum polycephalum show current versus voltage profiles consistent with memristive systems, and that this effect is due to the living protoplasma of the mould, which contributes to the development of self-growing bio-electronic circuits.

Mimicking Spike-Timing-Dependent Plasticity with Emulated Memristors
TLDR
This paper proposes a basic memristor emulation architecture and shows that it can be used to mimic certain characteristics of synapses and postulates that emulation has the advantage of working with real-world circuits and not stylized simulation models. Expand
Autowaves in Memristive Cellular Neural Networks

Antimonotonicity, Crisis and Multiple Attractors in a Simple Memristive Circuit
TLDR
The proposed circuit is the simplest memristive circuit containing the specific circuitry realization of the memristor to be so far presented in the literature, and characterization of the proposed circuit confirms its complex dynamic behavior. Expand
The memristor as an electric synapse - synchronization phenomena
TLDR
This work has studied using computer simulations, the dynamic behavior of two coupled, via a memristor, identical nonlinear circuits, which play the role of “neurons”. Expand
