Professor Peter Gawthrop, visiting researcher to National ICT Australia (NICTA) in the Department of Electrical & Electronic Engineering will be presenting a seminar as part of the NeuroEngineering Laboratory seminar series, titled "Intermittent Control: a Computational Theory of Human Control Systems". The term "Intermittent" has been used since the 1940s to describe human motion control as a sequence of open-loop trajectories punctuated by intermittent feedback. This seminar formulates a computational model to capture this behaviour whilst also explaining why human motion often appears to be continuous in nature. The use of the model to explain experimental data will be discussed.
