Real 'smart chip' developed

Abstract:
Researchers at the University of Calgary have found that nerve cells grown on a microchip can learn and memorize information which can be communicated to the brain. “We discovered that when we used the chip to stimulate the neurons, their synaptic strength was enhanced,” said Naweed Syed, a neurobiologist at the University of Calgary's faculty of medicine. “We've made a giant leap in answering several fundamental questions of biology and neuro-electronics that will pave the way for us to harness the power of nanotechnology."
