The Human Being is a highly complex biological system, which is characterised by an intelligent interaction of individual sub-units, finely tuned to each other. This dynamic interaction is considered to be energy-efficient, resilient to disturbance and highly integrated. The vision of the scientists in the cooperation is to achieve a profound understanding of the complex human system through system theoretic modelling. This should become useful as a model for the design of technical system. In addition approaches to new medical therapies open up by the susceptibility of the human system also being researched. The development of models of the human system that take into account the neuronal and in general the biological bases of human life, aims on the one hand to enable successful human-machine-interactions and on the other hand to fundamentally improve the diagnostics and therapy of disorders due to illness. Diseases of the central nervous system in particular are hereby paramount.
With the modelling approaches the researchers from the Universities of Stuttgart and Tübingen contribute their respective strengths to cooperation between system sciences, computer science, biology and experimental (ie. therapeutically-oriented) medicine.
To achieve this goal, we are combining the research activities of both locations within a joint "Center for System Sciences Stuttgart-Tübingen".
