Computational neuroscience is an approach to understanding the development and function of nervous systems, describing how electrical and chemical signals are used in the brain to interpret and process information. With better understanding of the brain, AI algorithms can be more advanced.
A neuron is basically a leaky bag of charged liquid- a bag where the contents are enclosed within a cell membrane that is…
