- Lab Tour
November 26, 17:30−18:30
Kanzaki Laboratory (RCAST, The University of Tokyo)
On-line registration is required. 【Registration closed due to capacity.】
The aim of the laboratory is to clarify the basic neural mechanisms for generating adaptive behavior using interdisciplinary approaches of informatics, engineering and biology. We use an insect as a model animal. We have taken a combined approach at various levels from genes over single neurons to neural networks, modeling, and robotics, owing to their seamless accessibility to a wide variety of methodological approaches.
In this laboratory tour, you will see these interdisciplinary approaches including demonstration of construction and simulation of insect brain on the K-supercomputer, insect machine hybrid system which is a robot controlled by insect through its behavior (i.e. insect-controlled robot) or neural activity recorded from a brain (i.e. cyborg insect), insect olfactory receptor protein based odor sensors and so on.
