Cyborg Lamprey visits the UK

Posted 11 Apr 2001 at 14:15 UTC by steve Share This

The fish-brained robot that was making news a year ago is now on display at the Science Museum in London according to this BBC news item. The robot was created by Dr. Mussa-Ivaldi of Northwestern University. He combined part of the brain from a Lamprey with a Khepera robot. The resulting cyborg shows various light following and avoidance behaviours. For more information on the robot, see this article from New Scientist or visit Dr. Mussa-Ivaldi's Robotics Research web site . But be careful what you click on the Dr's site; there's a link called "Be a Research Subject"...
