See-On Park, Hakcheon Jeong, Jong-Yong Park, researchers under EE Professor Shinhyun Choi, developed a highly reliable variable resistor (memristor) array that simulates the behavior of neurons using a metal oxide layer with an oxygen concentration gradient, and published their work in Nature Communications.

The study was selected for the Nature Communications’ Editor’s highlight, as well as for the Featured Image on the journal website’s front page.
