A cerebellar-inspired distributed plasticity mechanism is being successfully applied to the adaptive control of the Eye-Robot platform developed by Bristol Robotics Laboratory. This application (supported by the EPSRC Novel Computation Initiative) illustrates the emerging potential for cross-fertilisation between neuroscience and robotics (see Porrill and Dean, e197).
