Research Paper (undergraduate) from the year 2010 in the subject Psychology - Cognition, , language: English, abstract: The article offers a comprehensive overview of the Active Perception theory (PA); with the Complex Adaptive Systems theory in the background. It proposes that perceptual and motoric actions are essentially the same --- with the similar requirement for .8 seconds of neural activity --- until the perceptual or motoric act is carried out. In addition, the article identifies intent as a precursor to all perceptual or motoric actions. The article relies on the latest evidence in neurology (neuroscience), cognitive psychology, genomics and anthropology. It also relates these finds to finds in Artificial Intelligence, especially neural networks.
