                         modelled by cellular automaton. We consider deterministic and 
                         non-deterministic rules to simulate electrical and chemical 
                         synapses. Chemical synapses have an intrinsic time-delay and are 
                         susceptible to parameter variations guided by learning Hebbian 
                         rules of behaviour. The learning rules are related to 
                         neuroplasticity that describes change to the neural connections in 
                         the brain. Our results show that chemical synapses can abruptly 
                         enhance sensibility of the neural network, a manifestation that 
                         can become even more predominant if learning rules of evolution 
                         are applied to the chemical synapses.",
