Abstract

The artificial neural networks used in a multitude of fields are achieving good results. However, these systems are inspired in the vision of classical neuroscience where neurons are the only elements that process information in the brain. Advances in neuroscience have shown that there is a type of glial cell called astrocytes that collaborate with neurons to process information. In this work, a connectionist system formed by neurons and artificial astrocytes is presented. The astrocytes can have different configurations to achieve a biologically more realistic behaviour. This work indicates that the use of different artificial astrocytes behaviours is beneficial.
