What makes Sammy-Samantha and other mammals run? A first round of closure
Journal/Book: Ecol Psychol. 2000; 12: 10 Industrial Ave, Mahwah, NJ 07430-2262, USA. Lawrence Erlbaum Assoc Inc. 109-139.
Abstract: This article attempts to bring a first round of closure to an entire series of articles on command control (1960-1995). This contribution is of significance for the Gibsonian program (e.g., Iberall, 1995). This article attempts to complete a primitive physical foundation for that control process, for the basis of attention, action, and so-called purposeful or intentional movement or change in all complex systems, particularly mammalian and human. It assumes and neglects the very high-speed reflex actions that are dealt with by the autonomic nervous system. A discussion is included on the general character of the dynamic problem of command control in all of nature.
