A team of bioengineers at Stanford University has developed a sophisticated circuit board that can simulate synaptic firing with unparalleled accuracy, enabling researchers to create a workable model of the human brain. The "Neurogrid," which was funded with grant money from the NIH, can mimic billions of synaptic connections and, according to researchers, could one day be used to power next-generation prosthetic limbs.
