The Interneuron is the main processing element in a NeuroBytes network. Interneurons receive inputs via dendrites, display status using an LED, and send outputs to downstream NeuroBytes through the axon terminal.
The Rod Photoreceptor detects changes in ambient light using a photocell. This board can be calibrated using the on-board Zero and Span buttons to reflect ambient conditions, and sends information to downstream NeuroBytes via two output connectors.
The Tonic Neuron acts as a 'pacemaker', providing an adjustable regular sequence of action potentials that can be used to excite or inhibit downstream NeuroBytes. The Tonic Neuron also receives bias signals on its single dendrite input.
The Touch Sensory Neuron detects inputs using the attached switch. Touching the switch causes Touch Sensory Neurons to fire, sending information to downstream NeuroBytes via the two axon terminal connectors.
The Force Sensory Neuron detects inputs using an onboard force sensitive resistor. The Force Sensory Neuron varies its firing rate based on the pressure applied to the resistor, flashing its LED to indicate activity and sending action potentials to downstream NeuroBytes through the two axon terminal connections.
The Motor Neuron connects NeuroBytes networks to servo motors, allowing the network to produce motion. Motor Neurons receive inputs via three equally weighted dendrites and display status using an LED.
The Vestibular System simulates the portion of the inner ear that responds to motion. This board has five outputs that send action potentials to downstream NeuroBytes; the three semicircular canals measure rotation around three axes, while the two otoliths measure linear acceleration in two directions.
The Cochlea represents the portion of the inner ear dedicated to sound. Using the onboard microphone, the Cochlea bins incoming sound into six frequency bands and sends a proportionate rate of action potentials to downstream NeuroBytes boards. Each frequency band is visibly linked to different portions of the organ, and sound magnitudes are represented by green LEDs near the output connectors.
