// TNeuron
// This class decribes an elementary neuron, which is the basic
// element for a Neural Network.
// A network is build connecting neurons by synapses.
// There are different types of neurons: linear (a+bx),
// sigmoid (1/(1+exp(-x)), tanh or gaussian.
// In a Multi Layer Perceptron, the input layer is made of
// inactive neurons (returning the normalized input), hidden layers
// are made of sigmoids and output neurons are linear.
// This implementation contains several methods to compute the value,
// the derivative, the DeDw, ...
// Values are stored in local buffers. The SetNewEvent() method is
// there to inform buffered values are outdated.
