Section: New Results


This year we have explored the main cortico-basal loops of the cerebral architecture and their associated memory mechanisms. The limbic loop (cf. § 7.2) concerns the taking into account of the emotional and motivational aspects by the respondant and operant conditioning and their relations with the semantic and episodic memories. The associative loop (cf. § 7.3) is about mechanisms of working memory and rule manipulation. Concerning the motor loop (cf. § 7.4), we have studied mechanisms of song acquisition and production in birds.

We have also worked on the systemic integration of our models (cf. § 7.5), raising the question of the conditions of autonomous learning.

Finally, we study the links between our bio-inspired modeling work and other domains like Machine Learning, computer science and educational science (cf. § 7.6).
