Abstract

The human brain, with all its complexity, relies on an interconnected network of organic biological microfibers, known as neurons, which facilitate the propagation of information across the body. Through the use of electrical action potentials, these signals are processed using different spatio-temporal principles that rely on the biochemical nature of axons (used for information propagation) and synapses (highly variable junctions), which make up the mammalian neurobiological system. This manifests itself in the adaptable nature of the human cognition that makes us capable of learning through experiences.
