Emulation of biological synapses is necessary for future brain-inspired neuromorphic computational systems that could look beyond the standard von Neuman architecture. Here, artificial synapses based on ionic-electronic hybrid oxide-based transistors on rigid and flexible substrates are demonstrated. The flexible transistors reported here depict a high field-effect mobility of ≈9 cm2 V−1 s−1 with good mechanical performance. Comprehensive learning abilities/synaptic rules like paired-pulse facilitation, excitatory and inhibitory postsynaptic currents, spike-time-dependent plasticity, consolidation, superlinear amplification, and dynamic logic are successfully established depicting concurrent processing and memory functionalities with spatiotemporal correlation. The results present a fully solution processable approach to fabricate artificial synapses for next-generation transparent neural circuits. Artificial synapses based on metal oxide transistors are envisioned as fundamental building blocks for future neuromorphic computational systems. Fully solution processable artificial synapses based on ionic-electronic hybrid transistors on flexible polyimide substrates are demonstrated. Synaptic learning and forgetting rules like short-term synaptic plasticity, short-term memory to long-term memory transition, dynamic filtering, and spatiotemporally correlated signal processing are presented.
