Extended Neural Metastability in an Embodied Model of Sensorimotor Coupling

This paper is an extension of some of the results worked during my PhD thesis. We investigate how the source of metastability in cognitive activity is not necessarily restricted to the action of neural circuits alone, but in some circumstances … Continue reading

Self-Organized Criticality, Plasticity and Sensorimotor Coupling. Explorations with a Neurorobotic Model in a Behavioural Preference Task

It’s been some time since I started to develop a model of relational in a robot’s oscillatory neural controller. For a couple of years I have been intermittently working in a simulated agent in a behavioural preference task controlled by … Continue reading

Ultrastability, Homeostasis and Neural Assemblies

A few months ago I presented a talk entitled “Reappropriating Ashby’s Ultrastability for the Modelling of Neural Assemblies” at the “Cognition and Consciousness” Retecog Summer School 2012. In the talk I analysed homeostatic models derived from R.W. Ashby’s notion of … Continue reading
