Similarity of Thorn Bush with Neuronal Network and its Interconnectivity in Neuroscience
Our brain has 100 billion neurons with trillions of synaptic connections between them which interact to form a coherent representation of the outside world. The simplest definition of a neural network, more properly referred to as an ‘artificial’ neural network, is provided by Dr. Robert Hecht-Nielsen. He defines a neural network as a computing system made up of a number of simple, highly interconnected processing elements, which process information by their dynamic state response to external inputs. There are many neuron wallpapers in the world of neuroscience that gives us a realistic image of the neurons and the network connectivity, but it is interesting when we see such an image in the nature. We present a photograph taken from a thorn bush in a hill near Shiraz, Iran, that at the first glance shares a striking resemblance with a neuronal network and its interconnectivity of the human brain.
