From computational neuroscience to intelligent robots and back


The field of neurorobotics encompasses the intersection of computational neuroscience and robotics. The TUM-led neurorobotics subproject of the Human Brain Project is actively researching concepts within the field and developing the tools to allow researchers to fully explore simulated robotics driven by computational neuroscience models. Further, the development of biologically inspired, tendon-driven robotics systems provides a unique research platform. These efforts allow researchers to explore the interesting space from computational neuroscience to intelligent robots and back.
