A temporal summation device can be composed of one or more nanoconnections having an input and an output thereof, wherein an input signal provided to the input causes one or more of the nanoconnection to experience an increase in connection strength thereof over time. Additionally, a voltage divider is formed by the nanoconnection(s) and a resistor connected to the output of the nanoconnection(s), such that the voltage divider provides a voltage at the output the nanoonnection(s) that is in direct proportion to the connection strength of nanoconnection(s). An amplifier is also connected to the voltage divider, wherein when the voltage provided by the voltage divider attains a desired threshold voltage, the amplifier attains a high voltage output thereby providing a temporal summation device thereof.
