Inspired by the brain’s structure, IBM and Cornell University researchers have developed an efficient, scalable, and flexible non–von Neumann architecture in a 5.4-billion-transistor chip with 4096 neurosynaptic cores interconnected via an intrachip network that integrates 1 million programmable spiking neurons and 256 million configurable synapses.

Spontaneous network activity in the form of Up and Down states plays an important role in the function of neural circuits and reflects intrinsic connectivity. Such cortical dynamics are shaped by genes, experience and intrinsic cellular properties and form the substrate upon which external stimuli and neuromodulation will impinge to determine cortical responses.

When visual evoked potentials (VEPs) are deployed in brain–computer interfaces (BCIs), the emphasis is put on stimulus design. In the case of transient VEPs (TVEPs) brain responses are never treated individually, i.e. on a single-trial (ST) basis, due to their poor signal quality. Therefore their main characteristic, which is the emergence during early latencies, remains unexplored. Read the rest of this entry…
