In collaboration with Vivent SaRL (Switzerland), this project considers the energetic and evolutionary demand for information sharing in biological systems. The project also aims to determine, based on theoretical models, the expected types of components and their characteristics, for electromagnetic information networks, in multi-cellular entities. Consideration is also given to environmental noise and the modulation […]
