XOR found possible in a single _part of_ a neuron

Tnx, Brian.

This is what I found interesting:

(SNIP SNIP) Poirazi already knew XOR was possible: just two dendrites together could achieve it. 
(SNIP SNIP) ... new experiments ... in a _single dendrite_. 
(SNIP SNIP) Having such powerful individual neurons, according to Poirazi, might also _help the brain conserve energy_.

Here's a link to the researcher's lab site.
