Memory and Executive Function

We assume that an executive function module — the focus of our Module 2 — runs a set of routines to integrate vision and cognition. This includes routines for planning the next saccade critical for understanding a scene, as well as planning navigation and grasping. By combining behavioral experiments, neurophysiological recordings and computational models, we aim to build the critical building blocks for running these routines. The perceptual intelligence required to interpret a scene and perform complex common sense tasks on the visual input.
