B) The results of Robinson’s microstimulation experiment represented with the m–d system of coordinates. (Reprinted from Vision Research, 12, D. A. Robinson, Eye movements evoked by collicular stimulation in the alert monkey, pp. 1795–1808, © 1972, with permission from Elsevier Science. (C) Approximately how Robinson’s results would look if they were represented in h–v coordinates. 32 C. R. Gallistel cade with a 10Њ horizontal component and a 10Њ vertical component; that is, a saccade whose direction (45Њ) and magnitude (14Њ) were such as to foveate a stimulus at the distal position to which the units at that site were most sensitive.

Extrapolation implies not only that the inputs and outputs to the mapping are points in metric spaces, but also that the mapping between one region of the input space and its corresponding region in the output space defines the mapping for other regions of the input space. This is something akin to analyticity in the theory of functions, and, indeed, neural networks that specify a function over its entire domain are called function approximators. ) The subjects in the Shadmehr and Mussa-Ivaldi (1994) experiment extrapolated the adaptation they learned during training in the right work space to the left work space.

Dynamic Basis Functions One of the most important ideas in the theory of metric spaces is the concept of a basis function, which may be thought of as a generalization of the notion of the basis for a vector space, one of the fundamental ideas in linear algebra. Recent exper- 1 Coordinate Transformations in Action 19 imental results suggest that this idea may have relevance to our understanding of how the nervous system generates the muscle commands that induce a limb to follow a planned trajectory (Bizzi & Mussa-Ivaldi, 1995; Giszter, Mussa-Ivaldi, & Bizzi, 1993; Mussa-Ivaldi, Giszter, & Bizzi, 1994).
