The ...


Convolution is a technical term, and comes from the signal processing field. Unfortunately, it is easily confused with "convoluting". Effectively, "to convolve" means to pick a small "window", slide it across your signal, and compute the same function for each step. In CNNs, when applied to classifying, for example images, it means taking a small window, of ...


In short no. The speed at which and Action Potential (AP) occurs, resting membrane potential, and threshold to AP all vary across types of neutron. See the graph below (Bean, 2007) The reasons for these differences are various, as you will see if you read the referenced article, which I highly recommend as everything I write from here is based upon it. ...
