    abstract = {Although biomimetic autonomous robotics relies on the massively parallel architecture of the brain, the key issue is to temporally organize behaviour. The distributed representation of the sensory information has to be coherently processed to generate relevant actions. In the visual domain, we propose here a model of visual exploration of a scene by the means of localized computations in neural populations whose architecture allows the emergence of a coherent behaviour of sequential scanning of salient stimuli. It has been implemented on a real robotic platform exploring a moving and noisy scene including several identical targets.},

Vitay et al. note that while the brain can be seen as computing many things in parallel and mutually independent, they ultimately are affected by one another, as in walking and changing posture
