Course Description

Cognitive Neuroscience Robotics is an interdisciplinary area for development of new information and robot technology systems based on understanding higher functions of the human brain, with the integration of cognitive science, neuroscience, and robotics.

This course introduces Cognitive Neuroscience Robotics with two approaches: the synthetic and the analytic approach. The synthetic approach means an engineering approach to understand human cognitive functions synthetically, trying to understand human cognitive functions by replicating them as artificial systems and putting them into social environments. Specifically, it develops artificial systems such as robots based on findings in neuroscience and physiology, and investigates how they could acquire intelligent behaviors through interaction with others and the environment.

On the other hand, human cognitive activities are investigated analytically. They are supported by high...

Cognitive Neuroscience Robotics is an interdisciplinary area for development of new information and robot technology systems based on understanding higher functions of the human brain, with the integration of cognitive science, neuroscience, and robotics.

This course introduces Cognitive Neuroscience Robotics with two approaches: the synthetic and the analytic approach. The synthetic approach means an engineering approach to understand human cognitive functions synthetically, trying to understand human cognitive functions by replicating them as artificial systems and putting them into social environments. Specifically, it develops artificial systems such as robots based on findings in neuroscience and physiology, and investigates how they could acquire intelligent behaviors through interaction with others and the environment.

On the other hand, human cognitive activities are investigated analytically. They are supported by higher functions of the brain and have been examined by psychological experiments or brain imaging. With the analytic approach, psychologists, cognitive scientists, and medical doctors are pursuing an understanding of the mechanism of the mind and its biological basis, with the help of engineering and philosophy.

This program will help students make a basis for interdisciplinary research by providing opportunities to understand what is undertaken in other disciplines and how to collaborate and exchange ideas with people from other disciplines. We expect many motivated students to apply.

Very nice course, watched two weeks currently, it is more informative and philosophical than technical. English is definitely comprehensible, also there is subtitles. So course is good for getting to know the area. Sadly there is no part B.

Totally Useless Stuff.i want to explore something new here but the experience which i gain here,completely disappointed me..i just started attending to it as i wanna learn something new like more exciting but alas all in vain..my whole efforts spoiled here.really very bad experience..i cant say about others but truly the my words are bitter truth..

This is a nice course, although it may seem a bit too short, so I hope that the second part will compensate. It's a nice interdisciplinary introduction, with psychological aspects, problems in cognitive neuroscience, and advances in robotics and computer science. Quizzes are easy, and maybe too easy. A project of a kind would be a nice addition to the course.

I don't know.. I can barely understand your english I know your neuroscience knowledge is one of top of the world but your english speaking is ... I get stressed I love this course but due to listening I can't take it anymore Please sir.. we have subtitle so why don't you speak japanese? Sorry
