It doesn't matter how you model a neuron. Whatever sigmoid 
function you use will end up converging to the same result. All 
neurons function in the same way, and that is as a switch. This 
is why you can use all kinds of stuff for switches and it work.

It seems that as long as they mimic a step function then it will 

I'd suggest you design your algorithms around using a generic 
neuron and then you can play around with specific implementations.
