An artificial neurochip can be used in devices intended to replace damaged areas of the brain.

Researchers are creating a neurochip capable of transmitting a signal to healthy brain cells. The artificial neurochip can be used to replace damaged parts of the brain.

The researchers have been able to receive a signal sent from an artificial neuron to live brain cells. Now, they are seeking to create the world’s first neural network of at least 100 artificial nerve cells. They hope to achieve their goal within three years.

According to the scientists, the next important stage in the development of the neurochip is to understand the mechanisms of substitution and transmission of signals between neurons. Artificial chips will help to restore the lost transmission, they say.

Another project is aimed at creating an artificial nerve cell. Experimental results show that the electrical oscillations in an artificial neuron are almost identical to the electrical oscillations that occur in the neurons of the brain. As soon as a neural network of artificial nerve cells is created, preclinical tests on laboratory animals will begin. The tests should result in restoring electrical pulses in the damaged brain.
