Yagi Laboratory


The goal of this laboratory is to understand the neural mechanisms and computational principles of biological brain and vision, and to exploit its findings in engineering applications especially with relation to biomedical/rehabilitation engineering and bio-mimetic robotics. The approach involves a combination of engineering and biomedical experimental approaches, based on neuroscience. The current project is to develop a neural interface, which is a direct technological interface between the nervous systems and a computer. (See our flyer.)
