Memristors, the recently discovered 4th fundamental circuit element, have been used as models for biological components, such as neurons. It may be that neurons are memristors, rather than just conveniently modeled by them. This presentation covers recent results from the biological literature that points towards the position that some biological tissues can be memristive, recent results from the neuromorphic computing literature that suggest that memristors are good biological models and some of our recent work modelling ant societies with memristors.
