Borys Wrobel, Adam Mickiewicz University
I lead the Laboratory of Bioengineering at the Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznan, Poland. Our current projects are theoretical (bio-inspired computation) and experimental (optimizing cryopreservation of neural tissue). In our theoretical work, we design artificial evolutionary systems inspired by biological genetic and neural networks. We are interested in learning how small artificial spiking neural networks can perform simple computational operations in the presence of noise and damage. In our experimental work, we are investigating how to store neural tissue at very low temperatures to allow its further use in functional and structural neuroscience.
