The development of manipulation skills is a fundamental process for young primates as it leads them to acquire the capacity to modify the world to their advantage. As other motor skills, manipulation develops on the basis of motor babbling processes which are initially heavily based on the production of rhythmic movements. We propose a computational bio-inspired model to investigate the development of functional rhythmic hand skills from initially unstructured movements. The model is based on a… CONTINUE READING
