OIST Youtube channel


Date and Time:  Friday, 23 April 2021 from 18:30-19:30


Speaker: Akira Kawano (Developmental Neurobiology Unit)

※This event is only in Japanese (English subtitles will be added)

Talk Contents:

Mr. Kawano is studying the movement of living things.

The target organisms are nematodes, such as the bark beetle.

He observes the movements of nematodes, finds patterns, and predicts what they will do next.

They do not move randomly, but there are countless patterns or "chaos".

Based on chaos theory and statistics, how predictable are the movements of living things?

How predictable are the movements of living things, and can we obtain information such as neural activity from their movements?

Furthermore, are there any laws of motion that are common to the movements of all living things?
He will share his latest research.
