Recherche

Neurorobotics

In Neurorobotics we investigate models of nervous system in the context of a body that is embedded in a realistic (sensory rich) environment.

The neural models ranges from simple artificial networks to detailed reconstructions of mammalian brains. These models are then investigated in closed-action perceptions loops.

Since the real-time simulations of realistic neural systems is still for most cases out of reach, we work with simulated bodies, robots, and environments.
