1998 Special Issue of Neural Networks

NEURAL CONTROL AND ROBOTICS: BIOLOGY AND TECHNOLOGY


Planning and executing movements is of great importance in
both biological and mechanical systems. This Special Issue will
bring together a broad range of invited and contributed articles
that describe progress in understanding the biology and technology
of movement control. Movement control covers a wide range of topics,
from integration of different types of sensory information, to
flexible planning of movements, to generation of motor commands, to
compensation for internal and external perturbations. Of particular
importance are the coordinate transformations, memory systems, and
attentional and volitional mechanisms needed to implement movement
control. Neural control is the study of how biological systems have
solved these problems with joints, muscles, and brains. Robotics is
the attempt to build mechanical systems that can solve these problems
under constraints of size, weight, robustness, and cost. This Special
Issue welcomes high quality articles from both fields and seeks to
explore the possible synergies between them.
