Dr. Yoshikatsu Hayashi has received a PhD in Statistical Physics of soft matter from Lund University in 2004.
He is a lecturer in Cybernetical Physics. He is interested in neuroscience, behavioural science and physics in complex systems; revealing 1) Nonlinear dynamics governing adaptation behaviour in living creatures, 2) Closed loop of brain and body (equivalently, neural networks and sensory-motor systems), and 3) Mathematical structure underlying behaviour and neural networks. The significant investigation methods range over behavioural experiments, EEG measurement and analysis, robotic systems, mathematical modeling, and their combination. His aim is to reveal how the self-organization of the closed loop system gives rise to awareness or cognition in the interaction with changing environment, or with the other members in the society.
