 Le nuove acquisizioni sulla Sclerosi Laterale Amiotrofica (SLA) sono frutto di una collaborazione tra l'ISTC, l'Ospedale San Martino di Genova, l'Ospedale Le Molinette di Torino ed il Centro IRMET. Per l'ISTC la ricerca è stata svolta dal dott. Marco Pagani.

Di seguito due articoli sull'argomento, uno pubblicato sulla rivista scientifica Le Scienze e l'altro sul quotidiano La Stampa:

FOCUS ON

 

LOCEN is a research group of ISTC-CNR.
LOCEN ``mission'' is to use computational and robotic models to investigate how brain acquires behaviour, in a cumulative fashion, by interacting with the body and the environment; and to exploit the knowledge so acquired to build autonomous cumulative-learning humanoid robots. 
LOCEN was founded in 2006 and is a very dynamic and interdisciplinary research group formed by 8 young researchers plus 4 undergraduate students.
LOCEN research is funded by European Projects (with the exception of Gianluca's and Marco's salaries). 
LOCEN uses the research methods of "Developmental Robotics" and "Computational Embodied Neuroscience". 

LOCEN research topics are: robotic autonomous learning and development, extrinsic and intrinsic motivations, goal-based learning, hierarchical reinforcement learning, attention and active vision, motor control and muscles, habitual and goal-directed behaviour and learning, classical and instrumental conditioning, brain mechanisms underlying these processes in animals (e.g., amygdala, hippocampus, basal ganglia, frontal cortex, dopamine).
