A Simple Artificial Neuron



Biological neurons provided the inspiration for The threshold logic unit. However, the complexity of biological neurons is far in excess of that of a TLU. The animation below is a representation of the behaviour of certain types of biological neurons.


The threshold logic unit is designed to simulate the functionality of a simple neuron. Each of it's components is analogous to a biological component.

The next section of the report explains what is meant by the terms given used when discussing Threshold Logics Units. The report also explains how the Artificial and Biological components are analogous.

Next: The Threshold Logic Unit.
