Steering lamprey the right way: approaching the model.

To understand how the goal-directed behaviour can be achieved, integration of neuro-mechanical simulations is attempted using lamprey as a model vertebrate. Robotic simulation is built of known blocks developed earlier: mechanical lamprey, locomotor CPG and brainstem control. Visuomotor pathway is reviewed and a minimalistic model is plugged in and tested in simple environments.
