Evolving spiking networks with variable resistive memories (2014)
Journal Article
Gale, E., Howard, G., Howard, G. D., Bull, L., de Lacy Costello, B., & Adamatzky, A. (2014). Evolving spiking networks with variable resistive memories. Evolutionary Computation, 22(1), 79-103. https://doi.org/10.1162/EVCO_a_00103

Neuromorphic computing is a brainlike information processing paradigm that requires adaptive learning mechanisms. A spiking neuro-evolutionary system is used for this purpose; plastic resistive memories are implemented as synapses in spiking neural n...

Slime mould logic gates based on frequency changes of electrical potential oscillation (2014)
Journal Article
de Lacy Costello, B. P. J., Whiting, J. G. H., Whiting, J., de Lacy Costello, B., & Adamatzky, A. (2014). Slime mould logic gates based on frequency changes of electrical potential oscillation. BioSystems, 124, 21-25. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.biosystems.2014.08.001

Physarum polycephalum is a large single amoeba cell, which in its plasmodial phase, forages and connects nearby food sources with protoplasmic tubes. The organism forages for food by growing these tubes towards detected foodstuff, this foraging behav...

Emergent spiking in non-ideal memristor networks (2014)
Journal Article
Costello, B. D. L., Gale, E., de Lacy Costello, B., & Adamatzky, A. (2014). Emergent spiking in non-ideal memristor networks. Microelectronics Journal, 45(11), 1401-1415. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.mejo.2014.06.008

© 2014 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved. Memristors have uses as artificial synapses and perform well in this role in simulations with artificial spiking neurons. Our experiments show that memristor networks natively spike and can exhibit emergent o... Read More about Emergent spiking in non-ideal memristor networks.

A review of the volatiles from the healthy human body (2014)
Journal Article
Ratcliffe, N. M., Al-Kateb, H., De Lacy Costello, B., de Lacy Costello, B., Amann, A., Al-Kateb, H., …Ratcliffe, N. M. (2014). A review of the volatiles from the healthy human body. Journal of Breath Research, 8(1), https://doi.org/10.1088/1752-7155/8/1/014001

A compendium of all the volatile organic compounds (VOCs) emanating from the human body (the volatolome) is for the first time reported. 1840 VOCs have been assigned from breath (872), saliva (359), blood (154), milk (256), skin secretions (532) urin...

Surface electrical potential and observational growth recordings were made of a protoplasmic tube of the slime mould Physarum polycephalum in response to a multitude of stimuli with regards to sensory fusion or multisensory integration. Each stimulus... Read More about Sensory fusion in Physarum polycephalum and implementing multi-sensory functional computation.

Journal of Breath Research, 8(2), https://doi.org/10.1088/1752-7155/8/2/026001

There is much clinical interest in the development of a low-cost and reliable test for diagnosing inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), two very distinct diseases that can present with similar symptoms. The assessment o...
