10 Scientists Behind South Korea’s R&D Dominance 10 Scientists Behind South Korea’s R&D Dominance Korea is among the top performers worldwide when it comes to research and development (R&D) spending which stands at 4.2 percent of its GDP. This is second only to Israel which spends 4.3 percent of its GDP on R&D. In terms of human capital, South Korea counts 7,113 researchers per million inhabitants. Dec 12, 2018
Ten East Asian Scientists Recognized By Nature Ten East Asian Scientists Recognized By Nature Nature has identified ten outstanding scientists working in East Asia for a special feature on science in the region, including SNU Professors V. Narry Kim and Jinsoo Kim. Dec 12, 2018
An artificial nerve system gives prosthetic devices and robots a sense of touch An artificial nerve system gives prosthetic devices and robots a sense of touch Stanford and Seoul National University researchers have developed an artificial sensory nerve system that can activate the twitch reflex in a cockroach and identify letters in the Braille alphabet.

Artificial skin technology mimics touch sensations and reflexes Artificial skin technology mimics touch sensations and reflexes The artificial synaptic transistor, the brainchild of Tae-Woo Lee , PhD, of Seoul National University, was engineered to recognize and react to sensory inputs. To test the system’s ability to generate reflexes, the researchers hooked it up to an insect leg and applied various increments of pressure to the touch sensor. Jul 18, 2018
Artificial Nerve Senses Pressure, Moves Cockroach Leg Artificial Nerve Senses Pressure, Moves Cockroach Leg An international team of researchers reports the first known artificial nerve that can detect pressure—and even move the detached leg of a cockroach after the device was attached to the tissue. The authors suggest that similar sensors could one day incorporate into prosthetics to enable them to deliver touch information to users. Jul 18, 2018
New artificial nerves could transform prosthetics New artificial nerves could transform prosthetics Prosthetics may soon take on a whole new feel. That’s because researchers have created a new type of artificial nerve that can sense touch, process information, and communicate with other nerves much like those in our own bodies do. Jul 18, 2018
Synthetic nerve flexes a cockroach’s muscle Synthetic nerve flexes a cockroach’s muscle Artificial nerves that have an animal’s sophisticated sense of touch could advance the capabilities of prosthetics. Tae-Woo Lee at Seoul National University and his colleagues took a step towards that goal by designing a bio-inspired nerve system that communicates complex tactile information. Jul 18, 2018
