Endogenously Active Elements
Endogenous activity has been raised as an important mechanism for cognition, both in terms of neural self-organisation (Choa and Choi 2012) and for control (Bechtel and Abrahamsen 2010 ). Such a mechanism would be a very interesting extension to our PLANCS framework for behavior-based robotics (Dahl and Giraud-Carrier 2005).
