In this paper, we first introduce a neural network model of a planar, six-muscle, redundant arm whose structure and operation principles were inspired by those of the human arm. We developed the model with a motor-learning framework in mind, i.e., with the long-term goal of incorporating it in a parallel distributed learning scheme for the arm controller. We then demonstrate the response of the model to various patterns of activation of the arm muscles in order to study the relative role of… CONTINUE READING
