From A conversation about the brain
Jump to: navigation, search

The participants at this meeting were Bob Fisher, Bruce Cumming, Jenny Read, Ingo Bojak, James Stazicker and Andrew Glennerster. Quite a bit of the discussion related to tasks such as walking backwards along a route that is familiar only from walking forwards (the argument being that this must be hard to do on the basis of a graph of familiar views and the actions that normally relate these views). We discussed whether the key relevance of this example is that it is extremely hard to do or that it is possible at all.
