Main Article Content
Present computer processing capabilities are becoming a restriction to meet modern technological needs. Therefore, approaches beyond the von Neumann computational architecture are imperative and the brain operation and structure are truly attractive models. Memristors are characterized by a nonlinear relationship between current history and voltage and were shown to present properties resembling those of biological synapses. Here, the use of metal-insulator-metal-based memristive devices in neural networks capable of simulating the learning and adaptation features present in mammal brains is discussed.
