Main theme

Our laboratory aims to elucidate theoretical logic of dynamic living systems. By developing and simulating mathematical models, we are trying to understand mechanisms underlying phenomena in a bottom-up manner. We are also utilizing machine learning to extract hidden rules of dynamic, complicated phenomena from experimental quantitative data in a top-down manner. By means of these theoretical approaches, we are studying neuronal wiring in the brain, emotional neural dynamics, noise-resistant embryonic development, mechano-chemical mechanism of collective cell migration, cytoskeleton-based cellular morphogenesis, identification of intracellular information processing and animal behavioral strategy.
