The author discusses neuronal networks, that is the neuroelectric networks within individual nerve cells, and explains that they may be as complicated as networks of neurons were once considered to be. Typically a spatially distributed, apparently functionally heterogeneous structure comprising as many as seven distinct types of two- and three-terminal resistive elements with memory, the neuroelectric network of a neuron challenges present network-analytical capabilities and is probably better understood in terms of plausibility arguments than in terms of rigorously derived input-output relationships.
