A REALIZATION OF GOAL-DIRECTED BEHAVIOR - Implementing a Robot Model Based on Cortico-Striato-Thalamic Circuits

Berat Denizdurduran, Neslihan Serap Sengor

Abstract

Computational models of cognitive processes based on neural substrates clarify our understanding of the ongoing mechanisms during these high order processes. These models also inspire new approaches and techniques for implementing intelligent systems. Here, an implementation of goal-directed behaviour on Khepera II mobile robot will be presented. The main point of this work is to show the potential use of robot models for tasks requiring high order processes like goal-directed behaviour.
