Paper Abstract

The biological neuronal model is a n electrically polarized membrane capacitor with numerous ionic channels for synaptic inputs and leakage currents. It is generally a complex system whose geometrical, electronic, and chemical substructures synergistically determine its temporal dynamics in response to its input distributions. The integrate-and-fire pulse generator resets a local internal voltage activity, which in turn interacts with the other voltage distributions in the dendrites. A recent closed-form solution to a compartmental neuronal model shows that it is a fully chaotic system with algorithmic properties that provide a new approach to object-oriented data processing.
