A Bioinspired Artificial Gustatory Neuron for a Neuromorphic Based Electronic Tongue.

Nano Lett 2022 Jun 23. Epub 2022 Jun 23.

School of Electrical Engineering, Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST), 291 Daehak-ro, Yuseong-gu, Daejeon 34141, Republic of Korea.

A novel biomimicked neuromorphic sensor for an energy efficient and highly scalable electronic tongue (E-tongue) is demonstrated with a metal-oxide-semiconductor field-effect transistor (MOSFET). By mimicking a biological gustatory neuron, the proposed E-tongue can simultaneously detect ion concentrations of chemicals on an extended gate and encode spike signals on the MOSFET, which acts as an input neuron in a spiking neural network (SNN). Such in-sensor neuromorphic functioning can reduce the energy and area consumption of the conventional E-tongue hardware. Read More

The niche-specialist and age-related oral microbial ecosystem: crosstalk with host immune cells in homeostasis.

Microb Genom 2022 Jun;8(6)

Hospital of Stomatology, Guanghua School of Stomatology, Guangdong Provincial Key Laboratory of Stomatology, Sun Yat-Sen University, Guangzhou, PR China.

Although characterization of the baseline oral microbiota has been discussed, the current literature seems insufficient to draw a definitive conclusion on the interactions between the microbes themselves or with the host. This study focuses on the spatial and temporal characteristics of the oral microbial ecosystem in a mouse model and its crosstalk with host immune cells in homeostasis. The V3V4 regions of the 16S rRNA gene of 20 samples from four niches (tongue, buccal mucosa, keratinized gingiva and hard palate) and 10 samples from two life stages (adult and old) were analysed.
