Abstract:

Self-determined systems are usually studied by researchers with unrelated terminology and few known common principles. This workshop was aimed at bringing together scientists whose research directly confronts the problems of analyzing, explaining and building self-determined systems. We hoped that sharing their results and interpretations at the meeting would inspire cross pollination of ideas from different viewpoints and lead to a more unified approach and language to understanding self-determination. The workshop format and discussions were aimed at discovering underlying principles while amplifying little known links between scientific fields. The emphasis was on discovering tools and mechanisms that have general application to research problems in biology, neuroscience, psychology and computer science. Fifteen researchers came together to explore these issues at Harvard University, January 6-9, 1994. Together, they brought their expertise from Biology, Neuroscience, Developmental Psychology and Computational Modeling.
