General stochastic dynamics, developed in a framework of Feynman path integrals, have been applied to Lewinian field–theoretic psychodynamics [1,2,13], resulting in the development of a new concept of life–space foam (LSF) as a natural medium for motivational and cognitive psychodynamics. According to LSF formalisms, the classic Lewinian life space can be(More)
A novel, brain-like, hierarchical (affine-neuro-fuzzy-topological) control for biomechan-ically realistic humanoid-robot biodynamics (HB), formulated previously in [15, 16], is proposed in the form of a tensor-invariant, " meta-cybernetic " functor machine. It represents a physiologically inspired, three-level, nonlinear feedback controller of muscular-like(More)
The recently developed Life–Space–Foam approach to goal-directed human action deals with individual actor dynamics. This paper applies the model to characterize the dynamics of co-action by two or more actors. This dynamics is modelled by: (i) a two-term joint action (including cognitive/motivatonal potential and kinetic energy), and (ii) its associated(More)
The prediction and prevention of traumatic brain injury is a very important aspect of preventive medical science. This paper proposes a new coupled loading-rate hypothesis for the traumatic brain injury (TBI), which states that the main cause of the TBI is an external Euclidean jolt, or SE(3)-jolt, an impulsive loading that strikes the head in several(More)
Nonlinear space-time dynamics, defined in terms of celebrated 'solitonic' equations, brings indispensable tools for understanding, prediction and control of complex behaviors in both physical and life sciences. In this paper, we review sine–Gordon solitons, kinks and breathers as models of nonlinear excitations in complex systems in physics and in living(More)
