This talk gives an overview of on-going research combining computational neuroscience and reconfigurable computing. Neuroscience techniques and our understanding of the brain’s circuits are rapidly advancing, but a large gap exists in transitioning this knowledge to computing hardware suitable for advanced neural information processing applications. To this end, a team of researchers from the University of Rhode Island, Brown University, Baylor University and NUWC are studying the dynamical equations that govern various neural networks and are attempting to replicate these dynamics in reconfigurable silicon.  The groundwork laid by this research is intended to form the basis for new capabilities in autonomous sensing and information processing for leading-edge Naval technologies.
