In the series of our papers we have shown by computer simulations that cyclic enzyme systems in metabolic contorol pathways have the reliability of threshold logic function capable of storing short-memory, and the applicability to a prototype of an artificial neuronic device. Mimicking the switching algorithm of cyclic enzyme system based on a set of differential equations, the board-leveled analog circuit of this device is developed by using the PSpice program. We call this device “biochemical neuron”. This kind of study belongs to the practical implementation of functional devices in “natural intelligence” such as metabolic control system and neural networks.
