Neurocomputing is computer modeling based, in part, upon simulation of the structure and function of the brain. Neural networks excel in pattern recognition, that is, the ability to recognize a set of previously learned data. Although their use is rapidly growing in engineering, they are new to the pharmaceutical community. This article introduces neurocomputing using the backpropagation network (BPN).
