To describe how the central nervous system combines sensory messages, the hypothesis of a "stable estimator" is proposed: the central nervous system would construct internal estimates of the physical variables characterizing the body movements (e.g. head rotational velocity in space), while a regulating circuit would optimize the process of estimation of each variable, according to the available information and the overall performances of the sensorimotor reactions. The stable estimator of each… CONTINUE READING
