news: using polymers to mimic biological synapses

The Foulger group has been active in developing non-conjugated polymers for use as synaptic mimics and recently published an article in Advanced Electronic Materials on a carbazole derivatized n‐alkyl methacrylate polymeric memristor which acts as a flexible synaptic substitute. A biological synapse is a junction between two nerve cells and consists of a tiny gap across which electrical impulses pass by diffusion of a neurotransmitter and are the basis for cognitive responses in living creatures. The group's aim is to develop polymeric equivalents that can be printed in "physical" neural networks.
