Modelling and reasoning in health sciences are currently enjoying growing interest. This is paralleled by increased understanding that it are primarily the information processing systems within the organism's intercausal networks that provide the fundamentals of life.

Medical Cybernetics [-> preliminary definition] searches for quantitative descriptions of biological dynamics primarily in the intact, but beyond also in the diseased organism in order to gain new insights into the principles of life and its perturbations and to gather evidence based foundations for clinical decision making.

This portal is to provide scientific reference information and introductory notes on several fields of Medical Cybernetics as well as links to working groups, institutes, societies and associations, readings and events worldwide.
