Unformatted text preview: BME 6360 Homework #4 Spring 2011 Neural Engineering Prof. Wheeler Introduction The oculomotor system is a biological implementation of a classical control problem. A military analog is that of tracking a moving target with a gunsight mounted on a rolling ship. Many other analogs exist, especially in robotics. The system involves sensor inputs reporting both visual information about target location and gyroscopic information (from the semicircular canals) about the movement of the head; a physical plant (muscles) which moves the eyes; computation of drive signals based on computed estimates of the head position and velocity, which compensate for both the head movement and the sluggishness of the muscles; and specialized circuits for fast acquisition of a target (saccades). The oculomotor system is the only neural model which successfully includes an entire sensory- motor pathway, including significant internal computation. The modeling effort you will study is the best linear model of nervous system activity and one of the best applied to any biological activity. It was best linear model of nervous system activity and one of the best applied to any biological activity....
