Electronic components that exploit the phenomenon of superconductivity could allow us to study the collective behaviour of large numbers of neurons operating over long timescales. That is the finding of scientists in the US, who have shown how networks of artificial neurons containing two Josephson junctions would outpace more traditional computer-simulated brains by many orders of magnitude. Studying such junction-based systems could improve our understanding of long-term learning and memory along with factors that may contribute to disorders like epilepsy.
