Neuromorphic is a young term, derived from work by Carver Mead in the late 1980s, and describes the use of analogue or digital circuitry to mimic the interconnecting and ever changing neuron structure of a living brain.

Neuromorphic design is focussed on rebuilding a brain or parts of a brain artificially, generally for research and study, but also for AGI and other tasks.
