Abstract

Quantitation and mathematization of experimental neuroscience leads to the establishment of brain theory. Progress is spearheaded by system neuroscience and sensorimotor research, yielding computational paradigms of neural nets, to be utilized by neurocomputing and neurobotics. A mathematical concept and formalism using natural (general) coordinate systems that are intrinsic to the CNS is presented by a detailed elaboration of a computerized tensor network model for the vestibulocollic reflex in the cat, involving the cerebellum. The use of intrinsic coordinates is also shown for the multidimensional frames inherent in neuronal firings, and joint and muscle hyperspaces of the musculoskeletal apparatus of head movements. Tensor theory leads towards a quantitation and geometrization of concepts of motor strategies, trajectories, posture and style
