The goal is to build precise computational models of the brain: relationship between associative brain areas, hypothalamus, basal ganglia, cerebelum and prefrontal cortex.
Models are implemented and tested on robots in real environements with the double purpose of:
- Verifying the hypothesis done on the biological models and learning from failures and impossibilies in order to correct and complete those models. This is done by the mean of many feedbacks with psychologists and neuroscientists.
- Improving the behaviors of the robots in order to make them more autonomous with a better integration with humans (robustness, interaction). The goal is to directly apply what has been learn and discover in concret and useful applications.
