Formal principles of vision-based planning and control of arm movements are used to gain insight into the neurobio-logical mechanisms that underlie this important class of sen-sorimotor behavior. The primary conceptual tool used in this work has been a neurally inspired connectionist system called MURPHY that learns to reach for visual targets among obstacles, crudely based on the style of architecture and representations in sensory and motor areas of cerebral cortex. This system has provided a… CONTINUE READING
