Biological Cybernetics is an interdisciplinary medium for theoretical and application-oriented aspects of information processing in organisms, including sensory, motor, cognitive, and ecological phenomena. Topics covered include: mathematical modeling of biological systems; computational, theoretical or engineering studies with relevance for understanding biological information processing; and artificial implementation of biological information processing and self-organizing principles. Under the main aspects of performance and function of systems, emphasis is laid on communication between life sciences and technical/theoretical disciplines.
