Cell Assemblies and Robots
by Chris Huyck
- It's pretty clear that people and animals govern there behaviour
largely by neurons.
- Unfortunately, we haven't really figured out how those neurons
generate the behaviour.
- While we can look at behaving neurons, it's pretty hard
to see the behaviour of a lot of them at any one time. Animal
studies help a lot, because people don't like to have their brains
- Robots generally don't run on neurons and it's hoped that by
using neurons to drive robots, we can do better.
- I'm working with spiking neurons, which are actual models of
neurons not just inspired by neurons.
- I'm also working with recurrent connectivity, and am interested in
actual biological connectivity.
