Center for Neuroscience and Biomedical Engineering

Overview

In April 2019, the Brain Science Inspired Life Support Research Center was renamed the Center for Neuroscience and Biomedical Engineering (CNBE). This center researches and develops medical and welfare support technologies through collaboration among researchers in neuroscience, information engineering, biotechnology, human engineering, robotics, and optical science.

Lately Japan's population aging rate has exceeded 21% and Japan is becoming a super-aged society. The maintenance of social vitality is a serious and urgent issue that the country is facing. To realize a society in which people keep healthy in both mind and body and lead lives full of happiness, it is not sufficient to simply rely on the development of medicine. It is imperative that we develop a comprehensive welfare and medical care support system based on the knowledge obtained from research on recently developing science and engineering such as neuroscience, computer science, and robotics. To this end, researchers working in a variety of fields of expertise must cooperate and collaborate closely to find out practical health and welfare needs, and develop necessary support technologies. Furthermore, researchers need to guide and train students and young researchers to be creative practical engineers who respect for interdisciplinary collaboration. 

At the University of Electro-Communications, researchers from a broad range of science and engineering fields that includes information engineering, biological engineering, ergonomics, robotics, and optics are actively engaged in research on a daily basis. Recently, researchers at the university have also been studying neuroscience, neuroinformatics, and the related applications. Therefore, one of the missions of the Brain Science Inspired Life Support Research Center Center for Neuroscience and Biomedical Engineering is to promote medical-engineering integrative research based on the philosophy of “comprehensive communication sciences” which the university advocates, in order to innovate science and technology necessary for people to live peaceful, comfortable lives. Another important mission is to educate students and young researchers to be able to pursue the research on neuroscience and biomedical engineering for social contributions.
