Recent Studies of Active Operation in Neuron, Neural Group, and Neural Systems

Dr. Atsushi Fukasawa
Former Professor, Chiba University

Abstract: Actual operation of neurons remains much unknown, so advanced studies could be expected under cooperation of medicine and electrophysics. Neurons are affected by chemical matters, and neural systems are controlled by electrophysical interaction among neurons under chemical regulation. Conventional studies in neural systems has been conducted by medical physiology alone without cooperation of electrophysics.
He will present their recent studies in neuron, neural group, and neural systems electrophysically referring early studies by experiments. Novel result of studies will be shown by dynamic modelling, equivalent circuits and analysis in equations.
He will provide basis of originality given from knowledge in liquid junctions and dynamic zones induced in cell cytoplasm, and operation of bipolar pulse and plateau potential generation composed of a single neuron. Pulse Oscillators realizes synchronous systems for recognition of time, space, and motion of events.

Brief Biography of the Speaker: Atsushi Fukasawa received the Master of Arts degree and the Ph.D. degree from Waseda University in 1967 and 1983. He joined Graduate School of Natural Science, Chiba University as a professor in 1997. He received the Award of the Agency of Science and Technology, Japan in 1982, and Ohm (publisher) Prize in 1994. He is a senior member of the IEEE. He and his colleague, Dr. Y. Takizawa are the recipients of the Best Paper Award of Neurology’12, SummerMed, WSEAS/NAUN, July 2012.
