The development of a cognitive architecture based on neurons is currently viable. An initial architecture is proposed, and is based around a slow serial system, and a fast parallel system, with additional subsystems for behaviours such as sensing, action and language. Current technology allows us to emulate millions of neurons in real time supporting the development and use of relatively sophisticated systems based on the architecture. While knowledge of biological neural processing and learning rules, and cognitive behaviour is extensive, it is far from complete. This architecture provides a slowly varying neural structure that forms the framework for cognition and learning. It will provide support for exploring biological neural behaviour in functioning animals, and support for the development of artificial systems based on neurons.
