Neuronal networks

Neurons are a basic unit of a neuronal network, and have tremendous abilities to self-organize and form highly complex networks. Through these complex networks, neurons are able to communicate, where this communication consists of both electrical and chemical signals. Besides communication through wired interconnections, neurons are also able to communicate and interact through electromagnetic waves. This research is investigating the wireless communication capabilities between neuronal cultures.
