Studies on Active Operation in Neuron and Neural Groups and Industrial Applications

Dr. Atsushi Fukasawa
Former Professor, Chiba University
Research Organization of Information and Systems

Abstract: He and his colleague have studied the operational principle of a neuron and neural groups. It is based on the principles of electrical oscillation and synchronization in telecommunication and control systems. In his talk, it is clarified that a neuron operates as an oscillator of pulse and plateau signals. Then a neural group achieves signal processing under synchronous conditions. Physiological experiments of neurons are too hard where three electrodes must be inserted in the cells. The validation of our model and its analysis are supported by the studies on sensing and motion of unicellular animals. He will also present an application to estimation of event in time and space domain.
