  1. 1. A Possible World: Autism from Practice to Theory

    Author : Petra Zücker Björne; Kognitionsvetenskap; []
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Psychopedagogy; Utvecklingspsykologi; Development psychology; Psykologi; Psychology; pedagogical intervention; categorization; context; sensorimotor disturbances; autism; developmental theory; Pedagogisk psykologi;

    Abstract : Persons with autism develop along trajectories that differ from the typical. Therefore, development itself gives important clues for understanding the behavioral profile characteristic of autism. Developing autism means being different, not necessarily being deficient. READ MORE

  2. 2. Cognitive Interactive Robot Learning

    Author : Benjamin Fonooni; Hellström Thomas; Lars Erik Janlert; Christian Balkenius; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Learning from Demonstration; Imitation Learning; Human Robot Interaction; High-Level Behavior Learning; Shared Control; Cognitive Architectures; Cognitive Robotics; Priming; business data processing; administrativ databehandling;

    Abstract : Building general purpose autonomous robots that suit a wide range of user-specified applications, requires a leap from today's task-specific machines to more flexible and general ones. To achieve this goal, one should move from traditional preprogrammed robots to learning robots that easily can acquire new skills. READ MORE

  3. 3. Imaging imagining actions

    Author : CJ Olsson; Lars Nyberg; A.Mark Williams; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; mental training; motor training; novices; imaging; athletes; fMRI; internal imagery; motor representation; brain systems; practice; learning; transfer; active; Physiology; Fysiologi;

    Abstract : Mental training has been studied extensively for the past century but we are still not completely sure how it affects brain and behavior. The aim of this doctoral thesis was to examine one aspect of mental training i.e. motor imagery. READ MORE

  4. 4. Feedback control of cerebellar learning

    Author : Anders Rasmussen; Associativ inlärning; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Motor learning; Rescorla-Wagner; Anticipation; In vivo Electrophysiology; Purkinje cells; Nucleo-Olivary inhibition; Inferior Olive; Classical Conditioning; Eyeblink Conditioning; Feedback;

    Abstract : The ability to anticipate future events and to modify erroneous anticipatory actions is crucial for the survival of any organism. Both theoretical and empirical lines of evidence implicate the cerebellum in this ability. It is often suggested that the cerebellum acquires “expectations” or “internal models”. READ MORE

  5. 5. Adaptation and learning in postural control

    Author : Fredrik Tjernström; Lund näs- och halssjukdomar Öron-; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Postural control; Adaptation; Learning; Sensory reweighting;

    Abstract : The importance of the ability to use bipedal stance and gait in everyday life cannot be underestimated. Bipedal stance is learned during childhood and constantly adapted to changing circumstances throughout life. Failure to attain and maintain the control of upright posture can have catastrophic consequences. READ MORE
