Summary: 
In this paper, we propose the CMOS implementation of neuron models for an artificial auditory neural network. We show that when voltage is added directly to the control terminal of the basic circuit of the hardware neuron model, a change in the output firing is observed. Next, based on this circuit, a circuit that changes with time is added to the control terminal of the basic circuit of the hardware neuron model. As a result, a neuron model is constructed with ON firing, adaptation firing, and repetitive firing using CMOS. Furthermore, an improved circuit of a neuron model with OFF firing using CMOS which has been improved from the previous model is also constructed.
