Force Sensory Neuron

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.

Vestibular System

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.

Cochlea

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.
