On the role of dopamine in motivated behavior: a neuro-computational approach

Neuro-computational models allow to study the brain mechanisms involved in intelligent behavior and extract essential computational principles which can be implemented in cognitive systems. They are a promising solution to achieve a brain-like …

Emergence of sensorimotor functions on a numerical distributed neural substrate

This thesis ascribes in the field of computational neuroscience whose goal is to model complex cognitive functions by means of numerical computer simulations while getting inspiration from cerebral functioning. Contrary to a top-down approach …
