At NeuroTinker, our mission statement is “Build Your Own Brain with NeuroBytes!” What better way for students and maker enthusiasts to learn about the nervous system than by constructing one of their own? Our NeuroBytes are small, neuron shaped circuit boards that each simulate the behavior of one neuron. An LED integrated into each NeuroBytes module provides feedback about its activity level. Neural circuits are constructed by connecting NeuroBytes together using excitatory or inhibitory “neurotransmitter” cables. Similar to the real brain, these circuits can be triggered by environmental sensors and produce motor output. NeuroBytes BrainBuilders are only limited by their imagination!
