Neurally controlled animat
A Neurally Controlled Animat is the conjunction of (1) a neural network cultivated on a multiple electrode array and (2) a virtual body, the Animat, "living" in a virtual computer generated environment, connected to this array. Patterns of neural activity are used to control the virtual body, and the computer is used as a sensory device to provide electrical feedback to the neural network about the Animat's movement in the virtual environment.
Additional recommended knowledge
The current aim of the Animat research is to study the neuronal activity and plasticity when learning and processing information in order to find a mathematical model for the neural network.
It leads towards interesting questions about consciousness theories as well.
