Parietal Lobe: From Action Organization to Intention Understanding
Inferior parietal lobule (IPL) neurons were studied when monkeys performed motor acts embedded in different actions and when they observed similar acts done by an experimenter. Most motor IPL neuronsExpand

Neuronal Chains for Actions in the Parietal Lobe: A Computational Model
The inferior part of the parietal lobe (IPL) is known to play a very important role in sensorimotor integration. Neurons in this region code goal-related motor acts performed with the mouth, with theExpand

A spiking neuron model of the cortico-basal ganglia circuits for goal-directed and habitual action learning.
TLDR
In this paper we propose a multi-layer network of spiking neurons that implements in detail the thalamo-cortical circuits that are believed to be involved in action learning and execution. Expand

On the development of intention understanding for joint action tasks
TLDR
We address in a modeling study the question of how the ability to understand complex goal-directed action sequences may develop based on a local, Hebbian learning rule. Expand
