Aims and Scope

The goal of this workshop is to bring together an interdisciplinary group of theorists, roboticists, and neuroscientists to focus on sensorimotor integration as an important basis of cognition. The workshop will consider three particular themes: 1) thalamo-cortical relationships and their role in sensorimotor integration, 2) robotics and the far-reaching implications of the fact that cognitive systems are embodied, and situated agents, and 3) systems-theoretic aspects of sensorimotor integration in the context of theory and philosophy (representation, relevance of information, prediction, regulation, and control).


Conference Report

The student attendees collectively contributed to a conference report, which we hope to publish in early 2011. A link to the publication will be posted here at that time.
