In this letter, we present an original demonstration of an associative learning neural network inspired by the famous Pavlov's dogs experiment. [] Key Method We show how the physical properties of this dynamic memristive device can be used to perform low-power write operations for the learning and implement short-term association using temporal coding and spike-timing-dependent plasticity–based learning. An electronic circuit was built to validate the proposed learning scheme with packaged devices, with good…
