Achivements/proposals via industry-academia collabolations

Development of human interface to alter states of bodily self-awareness
Development of swarm theory and its applied technology

Areas interesting to interact with

Research fields that tackle part/whole problem under living system
such as Consciousness, Qualia, Adaptability, and Art


Lab. PR: The aim is to establish innovative methodology for living phenomena study. We think that the key is Foreignness.
Tech. PR: Experiment and computer simulation to reveal how organisms behave against changeable and/or unknow circumstances.
About Edu.: It is important for students to think deeply about questions in daily life from many sides. I wish that they never have an easy answer.
