      A genealogical map of the concept of habit 

      Barandiaran Fernández, Xabier Eugenio; Di Paolo, Ezequiel (Frontiers Research Foundation, 2014-07-21)
      The notion of information processing has dominated the study of the mind for over six decades. However, before the advent of cognitivism, one of the most prominent theoretical ideas was that of Habit. This is a concept ...

      A Minimal Model of Metabolism-Based Chemotaxis 

      Egbert, Matthew D.; Barandiaran Fernández, Xabier Eugenio; Di Paolo, Ezequiel (Public Library of Science, 2010-12-02)
      Since the pioneering work by Julius Adler in the 1960's, bacterial chemotaxis has been predominantly studied as metabolism-independent. All available simulation models of bacterial chemotaxis endorse this assumption. Recent ...

      Adaptation to criticality through organizational invariance in embodied agents 

      Aguilera Lizarraga, Miguel; González Bedia, Manuel (Nature Publishing, 2018-05-16)
      Many biological and cognitive systems do not operate deep within one or other regime of activity. Instead, they are poised at critical points located at phase transitions in their parameter space. The pervasiveness of ...

      An enactive and dynamical systems theory account of dyadic relationships 

      Kyselo, Miriam; Tschacher, Wolfgang (Frontiers Research Foundation, 2014-05-30)
      Many social relationships are a locus of struggle and suffering, either at the individual or interactional level. In this paper we explore why this is the case and suggest a modeling approach for dyadic interactions and ...

      La biología sintética como desafío para comprender la autonomía de lo vivo 

      Murillo Sánchez, Sara; Ruiz Mirazo, Pedro (Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas, 2016)
      We here offer an alternative view of synthetic biology, quite distant from the engineering approaches that currently set the main research agenda of the field. Our analysis centres on those lines of work, both theoretical ...

      Emergent Chemical Behavior in Variable-Volume Protocells 

      Shirt-Ediss, Benjamin John; Solé, Ricard V.; Ruiz Mirazo, Pedro (MDPI, 2015-01-13)
      Artificial protocellular compartments and lipid vesicles have been used as model systems to understand the origins and requirements for early cells, as well as to design encapsulated reactors for biotechnology. One prominent ...

      ¿En qué sentido es relativista David Hume? 

      Arrieta Urtizberea, Agustín (Departamento de Filosofía, Universidad de Málaga, Facultad de Filosofía y Letras, 2010)
      [ES]En este trabajo tratamos de esclarecer en qué sentido Hume es relativista con relación a la ética y a la estética. El sentimentalismo inherente a su ética y estética hace que, desde el punto de vista de algunos ...

      Exploring Criticality as a Generic Adaptive Mechanism 

      Aguilera Lizarraga, Miguel; González Bedia, Manuel (Frontiers Media, 2018-10-02)
      The activity of many biological and cognitive systems is not poised deep within a specific regime of activity. Instead, they operate near points of critical behavior located at the boundary between different phases. Certain ...

      Integrated Information in the Thermodynamic Limit 

      Aguilera Lizarraga, Miguel; Di Paolo, Ezequiel (International Neural Network Society, 2019-06)
      The capacity to integrate information is a prominent feature of biological, neural, and cognitive processes. Integrated Information Theory (IIT) provides mathematical tools for quantifying the level of integration in a ...

      Learning to perceive in the sensor motor approach: Piaget's theory of equilibration interpreted dynamically 

      Di Paolo, Ezequiel; Barandiaran Fernández, Xabier Eugenio; Beaton, Michael James Stuart; Buhrmann, Thomas (Frontiers Research Foundation, 2014-07-30)
      Learning to perceive is faced with a classical paradox: if understanding is required for perception, how can we learn to perceive something new, something we do not yet understand? According to the sensorimotor approach, ...

      Modelling Lipid Competition Dynamics in Heterogeneous Protocell Populations 

      Shirt-Ediss, Benjamin John; Ruiz Mirazo, Pedro; Mavelli, Fabio; Solé, Ricard V. (Nature Publishing Group, 2014-07-14)
      Recent experimental work in the field of synthetic protocell biology has shown that prebiotic vesicles are able to 'steal' lipids from each other. This phenomenon is driven purely by asymmetries in the physical state or ...

      ‘Neptune’ between ‘Hesperus’ and ‘Vulcan’: On descriptive names and non-existence 

      Arrieta Urtizberea, Agustín (Springer, 2005)
      [EN]This work will focus on some aspects of descriptive names. The New Theory of Reference, in line with Kripke, takes descriptive names to be proper names. I will argue in this paper that descriptive names and certain ...

      Percepción, descripción y explicación en la obra de Alexander Von Humboldt 

      Jiménez Pazos, Bárbara (Universidad Nacional de Colombia, 2017-12)
      Es recurrente la tendencia a considerar a Alexander von Humboldt como autor romántico-naturalista, dada la combinación del método científico de análisis empírico de la naturaleza con su visión estético-subjetiva que posee ...

      Scientific theories as intervening representations 

      Ibarra Unzueta, Joseba Andoni; Mormann , Thomas Arnold (2006)
      In this paper some classical representational ideas of Hertz and Duhem are used to show how the di-chotomy between representation and intervention can be overcome. More precisely, scientific theories are reconstructed as ...

      Self-Organized Criticality, Plasticity and Sensorimotor Coupling. Explorations with a Neurorobotic Model in a Behavioural Preference Task 

      Aguilera, Miguel; Barandiaran Fernández, Xabier Eugenio; Bedia, Manuel G.; Seron, Francisco (Public Library of Science, 2015-02-23)
      During the last two decades, analysis of 1/f noise in cognitive science has led to a considerable progress in the way we understand the organization of our mental life. However, there is still a lack of specific models ...

      Spinal circuits can accommodate interaction torques during multijoint limb movements 

      Buhrmann, Thomas; Di Paolo, Ezequiel (Frontiers Research Foundation, 2014-11-11)
      The dynamic interaction of limb segments during movements that involve multiple joints creates torques in one joint due to motion about another. Evidence shows that such interaction torques are taken into account during ...
