Summary:
The book integrates data on visuomotor coordination in frog and toad - and comparative sudies of salamander, bird, rep- tile, turtle, rat, gerbil, rabbit, and monkey - with the ex- position of a set of models, Rana computatrix, with broad implications for neuroethology and the design of neural net- works. The study provides insight int organizational prin- ciples for the brain which are to be sought not solely in  Read more...
