If you remove a newt's limb it will regrow. However, if you chop out enough of the nervous system in said limb, the limb will be lost forever. I am interested in how a nervous system can pattern biological form, and thus build models of both seashells and adaptive camouflaging skin, two systems pattened by neurons. I also am interested in dynamics, mean field neural models, and integrating the mechanics of developmental processes with the neural patterns underlying them.
