The Computational Sensorimotor Systems Lab seeks to develop real-time neural models of the brain to understand how animals perceive, interact with, and learn about their environment.   We are pursuing this by developing models of brains at the cellular, network, systems, and behavioral levels of abstraction and by testing these models in realistic sensory environments using custom neuromorphic VLSI, software, and robotic platforms.   Our current research focus is on the bat echolocation system, a system rich in interesting scientific questions and potential for commercial, industrial, and other applications.

This is called the “Microchipoptera Project”
