Neurons have resistance and capacitance, and if you changed these variables the neurons would malfunction. But the question was about the behaviour of the rat: do you think the robot rat could behave just like a biological rat given a certain environment or not? -- Stathis Papaioannou -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "Everything List" group.
