Abstract: Neuromorphic computing, which mimics the architecture and components of biological neural networks, is an emerging technology which might overcome some of the challenges that traditional computing is facing. In this talk, we will show how resistive switching can be used to mimic the functionalities of the two builiding blocks of a neural network: neuron and synapse. We will focus specially on the resistive switching caused by the voltage-triggered insulator to metal transition, discussing aspects such as its underlying mechanism, dynamics and its spatial distribution. We will also show some of our recent efforts towards emulating neuronal behaviour using this phenomenology.
