understanding the mind II

Schematic of the wiring of a robotic "crab." The bottom layer represents the world as seen by the crab's eyes in terms of the degrees of freedom available to its arm, this "representation" allows the crab to anticipate the movement of objects in its visual field and grab them with its claw.

From Churchland and Sejnowski, The Computational Brain, 1992.
