Project description

Cognitive Systems and Robotics The majority of current robot architectures is based on a perception-then-action control strategy. This project will adopt a theoretical perspective that turns this classical view upside-down and emphasizes the constitutive role of action for perception. The key concept of our project is based on that of sensorimotor contingencies, that is, relations between actions and associated changes in sensory input. Extended sensorimotor contingencies ( eSMCs ) may be exploited for the definition of object concepts and action plans and their mastery can lead to goal-oriented behavior. The project investigates and validates the concept of eSMCs in natural cognitive systems, by carrying out behavioural and neurophysiological studies on healthy human subjects and patients with movement dysfunctions.
