Description
Papers of Michael A. Arbib, Fletcher Jones Professor of Computer Science; University Professor; Professor of Biological Sciences, Biomedical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Neuroscience and Psychology; Director, USC Human Brain Project. Prof. Arbib has based his career on the argument that we can learn much about machines from studying brains, and much about brains from studying machines. He has thus always worked for an interdisciplinary environment in which computer scientists and engineers can talk to neuroscientists and cognitive scientists. His primary research focus is on the coordination of perception and action. Arbib's papers document his research as a theoretical neuroscientist and a computer scientist, as well as his work as a professor at USC. Included in the collection are his correspondence with colleagues in the field and publishers; articles and manuscript materials; and material pertaining to the Human Brain Project which Arbib conducted in the late 1990s.
