    Functioning Synapse Created Using Carbon Nanotubes: Devices Might Be Used in Brain Prostheses or Synthetic Brains

    ScienceDaily (Apr. 22, 2011) — Engineering researchers the University of Southern California have made a significant breakthrough in the use of nanotechnologies for the construction of a synthetic brain. They have built a carbon nanotube synapse circuit whose behavior in tests reproduces the function of a neuron, the building block of the brain.

    How Do You Build A Synthetic Brain? (Feb. 12, 2009) — Nanocarbon modeling may be the next step toward emulating human brain function. That's the focus of a "synthetic cortex" under ... > read more

    Faulty Brain Wiring May Be Bypassed With Carbon Nanotubes (Dec. 22, 2008) — Research done by scientists in Italy and Switzerland has shown that carbon nanotubes may be the ideal 'smart' brain material. Their results are a promising step forward in the search to find ways to ... > read more
