  2. 2. Sensory-motor regulation of human biting behavior

    Author : Krister Svensson; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []

    Abstract : In order to control oral motor behavior, such as biting and chewing, we rely on information provided by a variety of sense organs, including periodontal mechanoreceptors (PMRs). The PMRs, located among the collagen fibers in the periodontal ligament that attaches the root of the tooth to the alveolar bone, send signals to the central nervous system when the surrounding collagen fibers are stretched by loading of the tooth.

  3. 3. Cognition Rehearsed : Recognition and Reproduction of Demonstrated Behavior

    Author : Erik Billing; Thomas Hellström; Lars Erik Janlert; Danica Kragic; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Behavior Recognition; Learning and Adaptive Systems; Learning from Demonstration; Neurocomputational Modeling; Robot Learning; computer and systems sciences; data- och systemvetenskap;

    Abstract : The work presented in this dissertation investigates techniques for robot Learning from Demonstration (LFD). LFD is a well established approach where the robot is to learn from a set of demonstrations. The dissertation focuses on LFD where a human teacher demonstrates a behavior by controlling the robot via teleoperation. READ MORE

  4. 4. Generation and Optimization of Motor Behaviors in Real and Simulated Robots

    Author : Krister Wolff; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; behavior-based robotics; bipedal robots; behavior selection; evolutionary robotics; linear genetic programming; autonomous robots;

    Abstract : In this thesis, the problems of generating and optimizing motor behaviors for both simulated and real, physical robots have been investigated, using the paradigms of evolutionary robotics and behavior-based robotics. Specifically, three main topics have been considered: (1) On-line evolutionary optimization of hand-coded gaits for real, physical bipedal robots. READ MORE

  5. 5. Neural Control of Movement : Motor Neuron Subtypes, Proprioception and Recurrent Inhibition

    Author : Anders Enjin; Klas Kullander; Samuel L. Pfaff; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; motor neuron; proprioception; recurrent inhibition; molecular marker; Ia afferent; development; transgenic mice; Renshaw cell; Neurobiology; Neurobiologi; Neuroscience; Neurovetenskap;

    Abstract : Movement is central for life, and all animals depend on accurate regulation of movement for purposeful behavior. There is great diversity of movements, ranging between simple and vital breathing movements to minute and subtle movements of the face used to communicate emotions. READ MORE
