Sharrock's insight:

excerpt: "The difference is that the computations that underlie whether or not a neuron fires are driven by continuous, non-linear processes, more akin to an analog signal. Neurogrid uses an analog signal for computations, and a digital signal for communication. In doing so, it follows the samehybrid

 analog-digital approach as the brain."
