From Bricks to Brains: The Embodied Cognitive Science of LEGO
by M. Dawson, B. Dupuis, M. Wilson
Publisher: AU Press 2010
Number of pages: 354
From Bricks to Brains introduces embodied cognitive science, and illustrates its foundational ideas through the construction and observation of LEGO Mindstorms robots. The book places a renewed emphasis on sensing and acting, the importance of embodiment, the exploration of distributed notions of control, and the development of theories by synthesizing simple systems and exploring their behaviour.
