An electronic current is made up of the flow of electrons. As engineers shrink electrical transistors down to nanoscale dimensions, electrons get trapped, making it difficult for digital computers to work as well as they should. In contrast, our brains have nano-sized channels through which tiny charged particles pass freely when they are opened. Dr. Boahen’s team creates computer technology that mimics the way our brains are wired.
