Memristors have been compared to neurons (usually specifically the synapses) since 1976 but no experimental evidence has been offered for support for this position. Here we highlight that memristors naturally form fast-response, highly reproducible and repeatable current spikes which can be used in voltage-driven neuromorphic architecture. Ease of fitting current spikes with memristor theories both suggests that the spikes are part of the memristive effect and provides modeling capability for the design of neuromorphic circuits.
