To understand how the goal-directed behaviour can be achieved, integration of neuro-mechanical simulations is attempted using lamprey as a model vertebrate. Robotic
simulation is built of known blocks developed earlier:
mechanical lamprey, locomotor CPG and brainstem control.
Visuomotor pathway is reviewed and a minimalistic model is
plugged in and tested in simple environments.
