I bought the paper & read it.
I got the impression that it extends previous work, albeit incrementally.
However, it also demonstrated potentiation of synapses by electronics is

I may not be completely au fait with this area but that struck me as an
incredibly significant detail.
I would be proud to have achieved this & be published.
