This study revealed paths of signal transduction regarding radiation stimulus of Caenorhabditis elegans (C. elegans) and constructed mathematical models of C. elegans to enable analysis of the mechanisms behind chemotaxis and rhythm generation. Mathematical models of the olfactory system were also constructed based on biological insight regarding mice and rats, and the study enabled simulation for selective attention in relation to odorant components, prediction of neural responses on the glomerular layer of the olfactory bulb, and prediction of perceptive similarities between odorants based on glomerular responses. Further, a bioassay system incorporating the use of small fish was created to allow immediate detection of water contamination.
