Can bioengineering immitate the analog to digital conversion performed by our inner ear?
How do organs such as the inner ear deal with the imprecision of analog computing?

Fly like a Fly

If analog computing is so marvelously efficient, why is almost every electronic system you come accross digital?
Do brain cells share interesting characteristics with subthreshold transistors and how can it be effectively used?

Biological neural networks are large systems of complex elements interacting through a complex array of connections.
Neural network modeling
How do we describe and interpret the activity of a large
population of neurons and how do we model neural circuits when:
o individual neurons are such complex elements and
o our knowledge of the synaptic connections is so incomplete?
