Overview

The book deals with a new way to conceive bio-robotics, linking this subject to the theory of nonlinear dynamical systems and analog/logic circuits, like Cellular Nonlinear Networks and spiking networks. The topic is treated as a series of lessons, explaining the details of the different aspects, from Neurobiology to Electronics, to Robotics, including specific sensory and sensorymotor system modelling and implementation by using spiking networks. Moreover, it is explained how bio-robots can be used to model biological behaviours.
