Information has been stored in live neurons for the first time, bringing closer the creation of “cyborg” computer chips that combine electronic circuits with human cells. Networks of cultured neurons are known to spontaneously fire in specific patterns. Researchers have previously attempted to program these neural networks with new patterns, representing bits of information, by electrically stimulating individual cells. However, such zapping disrupts their spontaneous firing patterns,
