  • Current debates regarding the possible cognitive implications of ideas from adaptive behavior research and dynamical systems theory would benefit greatly from a careful study of simple model agents that exhibit minimally cognitive behavior. This paper sketches one such agent, and presents the results of preliminary experiments on the evolution of dynamical neural networks for visually-guided orientation, object discrimination and accurate pointing with a simple manipulator to objects appearing… CONTINUE READING
