These memory learning structures are the building blocks of the functional neuro-cognitive brain and they can be broadly classified into huppocampal global semantic memories and neocortical like semantic association memories. In addition, research into CMAC and in-house developed MCMACs and Fuzzy MCMACs are actively pursued. They form a class of cerebellar like association memories that have excellent memory resolution and recall. The application areas are extensive as they rely heavily on the basic research into brain-inspired learning memory structures and brain-inspired cognitive architectures for emotion, cognition and perception modeling.

Assoc Prof Teo Ee Chon
Dr Teo has for the past 18 years been a dynamic researcher in the area of human spinal biomechanics, crossing both experimental and computational fields. His central accomplishment was pioneering a novel method for the computational modelling of the human second cervical vertebra (C2) using a computer controlled Co-ordinate Measuring Machine in 1987, progressing to the spinal segments and column using an advanced 6 DOF flexible digitiser in 2000. It was one of Dr Teo's earliest conference papers, Finite Element Stress Analysis of a Cadaver Second Cervical Vertebra, presented in the 16th World Congress on Medical Physics and Biomedical Engineering in Kyoto 1991, that subsequently led to the exploration of the use of the FE method in human spinal analysis based on geometrical data from digitised or scanned images (X-ray, CT scan, MRI). The presented paper was selected as outstanding contribution for subsequent publication in Medical & Biological Engineering & Computing in 1994. Over the years, Dr Teo and his team have created FE models of the various spinal regions to predetermine the three-dimensional flexibility changes of degenerated or injured spine and relate the data to established published experimental and radiological findings. The FE models help to enhance various relevant clinical and experimental studies and reduce time and cost for diagnosis and implants pre- and post-surgery. Also, as an extension of his research interest in producing "virtual" injuries, he is employing the FE models of the spine for simulation and analysis of head-neck region trauma due to whiplash and pilot egress, with the aim of predicting injury, establishing safety standards and influencing the design of equipment and platforms. Extending his computational research expertise beyond the spinal field, Dr Teo also performed simulation analyses of offshore tubular tubular joints with doubling-plate stiffeners and deep seas offshore connectors for offshore marine engineering company. He also performed comparative analysis of proposed coronary (heart) stents and human spine implants devices for few joint venture local biomedical company. Overall, the research success that Dr Teo has achieved and the extensive network with external researchers in similar fields that he has built have helped NTU's standing, particularly, in spinal research both locally and internationally.
