However, ToolSelect compared with ToolUse deficits were specifically related to damage within ventral stream regions including anterior temporal lobe.  ...  Deficits affecting both the selection of the appropriate recipient for a given tool (ToolSelect, e.g., choosing the nail for the hammer), and the performance of the typical tool-associated action (ToolUse  ...  Conversely, we predicted that the performance of the tool-associated action (ToolUse) would rely comparatively more on the integrity of ventro-dorsal regions such as the IPL, as well as on the dorso-dorsal  ...

2013 Experimental Brain Research  
similar to the one of the tool.  ...  These results show that a brief training with a tool induces plastic changes both to the perceived dimensions of the body part acting upon the tool and to the space around it, suggesting a strong overlap  ...  In line with this principle of multisensory integration, we have recently showed that RTs to tactile stimuli progressively decrease as much as the sound is perceived as approaching the body, and conversely  ...

, and is also of great interest to philosophers and behavioural ecologists.  ...  We studied the proposed extension of peripersonal space by tool-use by measuring the effects of three different tool-use tasks on the integration of visual and tactile stimuli at three distances from participants  ...  The proficient use of tools by humans and animals requires the effective integration of multisensory information relating to the body, to the tool(s), and to the space around the body and the tool(s).  ...

Tool-use: An open window into body representation and its plasticity

Marie Martel, Lucilla Cardinali, Alice C. Roy, Alessandro Farnè
2016 Cognitive Neuropsychology  
Evidence is emerging for tool-use to affect also more visually and conceptually based representations of the body, such as the Body Image.  ...  More recently, we focused on the modifications tool-use must exert on the sensorimotor system and highlighted plastic changes at the level of the body representation used by the brain to control our movements  ...  These authors, considering tooluse in terms of tool-embodiment, opened the field to studies about prosthetic arms, and the way they are integrated into the body representations, for an optimal sensorimotor  ...

Adaptive tool-use strategies for anthropomorphic service robots

Jorg Stuckler, Sven Behnke
2014 2014 IEEE-RAS International Conference on Humanoid Robots  
Based on the observation that human tools are specifically designed for the human body, we augment tools with handles that adapt the tool to the specifics of our robot.  ...  We develop methods for perceiving the tools and their end-effectors in RGB-D images. We also describe our control approaches used in our tool-use examples.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENT The authors thank the members of team NimbRo@Home for their hard work in preparing and running the RoboCup competition systems.  ...

TALM: Tool Augmented Language Models [article]

Aaron Parisi, Yao Zhao, Noah Fiedel
2022 arXiv   pre-print
In this work, we present Tool Augmented Language Models (TALM), combining a text-only approach to augment language models with non-differentiable tools, and an iterative "self-play" technique to bootstrap  ...  Scale alone however cannot enable models to solve tasks that require access to ephemeral, changing, or private data that was unavailable at training time.  ...  Acknowledgements The authors would like to thank Noam Shazeer for early brainstorming on the path towards this work. We also thank Igor Mordatch for discussions and feedback.  ...

2019 Frontiers in Psychology  
ACKNOWLEDGMENTS None of this would be possible without the contributing authors, their study participants, the reviewers, editors, the additional guest editor, funding agencies, and the Frontiers platform  ...  In the line bisection task, performance depends on integration of differently weighted visuospatial hemispheric mechanisms, the motor component of the used hand, and individual laterality factors.  ...  It is also emphasized that representations of language and tooluse skills are rather poorly correlated with handedness.  ...
