The Hierarchical Organisation of Cortical and Basal-Ganglia Systems: A Computationally-Informed Review and Integrated Hypothesis [chapter]

Gianluca Baldassarre, Daniele Caligiore, Francesco Mannella
2013 Computational and Robotic Models of the Hierarchical Organization of Behavior  
Finally we propose a theoretical integration of the two views, showing how this allows to solve most of the problems found by the two accounts if taken in isolation.  ...  Then we review two computational modelling works of the authors that exemplify the problems, brain areas, experiments, main concepts and limitations of the two research threads.  ...  Acknowledgements This research has received funds from the European Commission 7th Framework Programme (FP7/2007(FP7/ -2013, "Challenge 2 -Cognitive Systems, Interaction, Robotics", Grant Agreement No.  ...

The extended mind argument against phenomenal intentionality

Cody Turner
2021 Phenomenology and the Cognitive Sciences  
If these two claims are correct, then PIT is false, for PIT implies that the extension of source intentionality is predicated upon the extension of phenomenal consciousness.  ...  PIT has entered the philosophical mainstream and is now a serious contender to naturalistic views of intentionality like the tracking theory and the functional role theory (Loar 1987, 2003; Searle 1990  ...  OPAs bound up in self-stimulating loops with external entities satisfy the sensorimotor interaction condition for cognitive extension.  ...

2011 2011 IEEE Symposium on Artificial Life (ALIFE)  
part of functional brain dynamics can be understood without incorporating the sensorimotor loop into the picture.  ...  loop dynamics plays a critical role generating and sustaining functional metastable regimes of brain activity by modulating the network's control parameter.  ...  Santos acknowledges financial support from Brazilian National Council of Research, CNPq.  ...

A Behavioral Framework for Information Representation in the Brain [chapter]

Frédéric Alexandre
2017 Computational Models of Brain and Behavior  
On this basis, we propose a framework of description for the architecture of the brain of mammals, organized around four fundamental questions to be answered.  ...  It also proposes a systemic view of the brain, useful to develop the cognitive architecture of an intelligent agent exploring autonomously its environment and to propose to machine learning innovative  ...  This idea is reminiscent of the principle of imbricated sensorimotor loops proposed in (Guillery, 2005) , convenient both for incremental learning and for responding at anytime.  ...

Grounding Procedural and Declarative Knowledge in Sensorimotor Anticipation

GIOVANNI PEZZULO
2011 Mind & Language  
determined the first form of representational content and were exapted for increasingly sophisticated cognitive uses.  ...  We propose a view of embodied representations that is alternative to both symbolic/linguistic approaches and purely sensorimotor views of cognition, and can account for procedural and declarative knowledge  ...  The Sensorimotor Approach The sensorimotor approach overturns the classical idea of cognitive science that cognition equates to reasoning, and tends to collapse cognition and sensorimotor interaction,  ...

Acting Up: An Approach to the Study of Cognitive Development [chapter]

2016 The Pragmatic Turn  
The emerging "paradigm" of action-based cognition implies that cognitive development is an active rather than a passive, automatic, and self-paced maturational process.  ...  Importantly, "active" refers to both sensorimotor activity (in the narrow sense) as well as to autonomous exploration (e.g., as found in active perception or active learning).  ...  the Ernst Strüngmann Forum who contributed to our discussions for their useful insights.  ...

2009 Journal of Neuroscience  
In this summary of topics, which is not meant to provide a comprehensive survey, we will first review the anatomy of corticostriatal circuits, comparing different ways by which "loops" of cortical-basal  ...  Next, we will address the causal importance and systems-neurophysiological mechanisms of corticostriatal interactions for memory, emphasizing the communication between hippocampus and ventral striatum  ...  the sensorimotor loop.  ...

SENSORIMOTOR SKILLS AND PERCEPTION

Andy Clark, Naomi Eilan
2006 Proceedings of the Aristotelian Society  
What is the relation between perceptual experience and the suite of sensorimotor skills that enable us to act in the very world we perceive?  ...  I shall argue that this formulation is too extreme, and that it fails to accommodate the substantial firewalls, dis-integrations, and specialpurpose streamings that form the massed strata of human cognition  ...  But what exactly is the role of the actual sensorimotor loops by means of which such access is provided?  ...

Generative models as parsimonious descriptions of sensorimotor loops [article]

Manuel Baltieri, Christopher L. Buckley
2019 arXiv   pre-print
We suggest that they can (and should) be used to describe sensorimotor relationships relevant for behaviour rather than precise accounts of the world.  ...  However, generative models need not be veridical representations of the environment.  ...  Acknowledgements MB would like to thank Martin Biehl and Simon McGregor for insightful discussions.  ...

Examples of three cognitive tasks where the stimulus context was kept constant while manipulating motor and sensorimotor demands (Barcelo and Cooper, 2018) .  ...  We suggest shifting the focus of context to specifically capture the uncertainty about upcoming actions, which may be represented in the brain through hierarchies of sensorimotor loops that evolve dynamically  ...  FB wrote the first draft of the manuscript.

Anticipation: Beyond synthetic biology and cognitive robotics

Slawomir J. Nasuto, Yoshikatsu Hayashi
2016 Biosystems (Amsterdam. Print)  
The aim of this paper is to propose that current robotic technologies cannot have intentional states any more than is feasible within the sensorimotor variant of embodied cognition.  ...  It argues that anticipation is an emerging concept that can provide a bridge between both the deepest philosophical theories about the nature of life and cognition and the empirical biological and cognitive  ...  Acknowledgements The research on animat was supported by the EPSRC funded grant "Investigating the computational capacity of cultured neuronal networks using machine learning" (EP/D080134/1).  ...

A Cognitive Architecture Based on Cognitive/Neurological Dual-System Theories [chapter]

Othalia Larue, Pierre Poirier, Roger Nkambou
2012 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In previous work [11] , we introduced a cognitive architecture for the simulation of human behaviour based on Stanovich's tripartite framework [1] , which provides an explanation of how reflexive and adaptive  ...  human behaviour emerge from the interaction of three distinct cognitive levels (automatic/reactive, algorithmic and reflective) capable of dynamically influencing each other in real time.  ...  Serotonin neuromodulation is thus part of the sensorimotor loop, whereas dopamine neuromodulation is part of the goal control loop.  ...

Where Is the Action in Perception? An Exploratory Study With a Haptic Sensory Substitution Device

Tom Froese, Guillermo U. Ortiz-Garin
2020 Frontiers in Psychology  
Enactive cognitive science (ECS) and ecological psychology (EP) agree that active movement is important for perception, but they remain ambiguous regarding the precise role of agency.  ...  EP has focused on the notion of sensorimotor invariants, according to which bodily movements play an instrumental role in perception.  ...  underwent exactly the same sensorimotor loop.  ...
