Brain, body and environment are in continuous dynamical interaction, and it is becoming increasingly clear that an animal's behavior must be understood as a product not only of its nervous system, but also of the ongoing feedback of this neural activity through the biomechanics of its body and the ecology of its environment. Modeling has an essential integrative role to play in such an understanding. But successful whole-animal modeling requires an animal for which detailed behavioral… CONTINUE READING
