Research Overview

It is no exaggeration to say that the brain and the neural sensor are ones of the most sophisticated nonlinear dynamical systems. In the central nervous system, dynamic reconfigurable features of the neural networks are believed to play important roles to realize the neural information processing. On the other hand, recently, dynamic reconfigurable VILS has been rapidly developed. In our lab, novel bio-inspired dynamic reconfigurable VILSs are developed and their applications to information technology as well as biomedical engineering are investigated.
