What are Neural Networks?

  • A biological neural network is composed of groups of chemically connected or functionally associated neurons.
  • A single neuron may be connected to many other neurons and the total number of neurons and connections in a network may be extensive.
  • Neurons are highly specialized cells that transmit impulses within animals to cause a change in a target cell such as a muscle effector cell or a glandular cell.
  • Impulses are noisy “spike trains” of electronical potential.
  • Apart from the electrical signaling, neurotransmitter diffusion (endogenous chemicals) can effectuate the impulses.
