Abstract

We show that under simultaneous illumination of pulsed blue light and constant IR light the dynamic responses of electron-trapping materials could be employed to implement optically controlled neural dendritic responses. The importance of neurocomputing with biology-oriented spiking neurons and the role played by dendritic trees are discussed. Computer simulations of dendritic responses in biological neuron and experimental results of electron-trapping material dynamics are presented. These results show that electron-trapping materials are well suited for implementing optically controlled dendritic responses for use in large-scale biology-oriented optoelectronic spiking neural networks.
