Language within our grasp
In monkeys, the rostral part of ventral premotor cortex (area F5) contains neurons that discharge, both when the monkey grasps or manipulates objects and when it observes the experimenter makingExpand

  • 1 April 2005
The article analyzes the neural and functional grounding of language skills as well as their emergence in hominid evolution, hypothesizing stages leading from abilities known to exist in monkeys andExpand
Grasping objects: the cortical mechanisms of visuomotor transformation
Grasping requires coding of the object's intrinsic properties (size and shape), and the transformation of these properties into a pattern of distal (finger and wrist) movements. Computational modelsExpand

Localization of grasp representations in humans by positron emission tomography
Positron emission tomography imaging of cerebral blood flow was used to localize brain areas involved in the representation of hand grasping movements. Seven normal subjects were scanned under threeExpand
Modeling parietal-premotor interactions in primate control of grasping
In this paper, we present the FARS model of the cortical involvement in grasping, a model which focuses on the interaction between anterior intra-parietal area (AIP) and premotor area F5. Expand
Perceptual Structures and Distributed Motor Control
The sections in this article are: The Place of Brain Theory Within Cybernetics, Perceptual and Motor Schemas and the Action-Perception Cycle. Expand
An Introduction to Formal Language Theory
This voume combines An Introduction to Formal Language Theory with issues in computational linguistics. Expand

  • 1 September 1993
We show how to transform an optimality principle for overall hand transport into a feedback control law and then incorporate look-ahead modules in the controller to compensate for delays in sensory feedback. Expand
