The modelling of neural systems could help promote the design of more effective and intelligent machines and aid the search for cures for neurological disease.
The convergent science network (CSN) works to facilitate the advancement of biomimetic and hybrid biological and artificial systems. A key CSN focus is the physiological basis for intelligent behaviour and neuromimetics: the modelling of neural systems. Exciting emerging topics within this field include neuromimetic controllers in hardware (neuromorphics) and control architectures of complex artefacts such as robots (neurorobotics). Such systems could lead to significant advances in the brain sciences, which, in addition to promoting the design of more effective and intelligent machines, could help us understand ourselves better and aid the search for cures for neurological disease.
