From a neuroscience perspective, being able to actively explore the world might have been one of the key factors that provided organisms evolutionary advantages that triggered the development of cognitive process such as prediction, attention, learning and memory (Swanson, 2003). Recent advances in artificial intelligence (AI) and neuroscience are impressive. 73, 1–15. While hippocampal circuitry has been linked with allocentric spatial processing, subcortical regions such as a basal ganglia-cortical circuit are thought to contribute to some forms of egocentric action-based navigation. 9, 292–303. doi: 10.1016/j.neuroscience.2011.09.020.

We then turn our attention to discuss how spatial navigation has been modeled using descriptive, mechanistic, and normative approaches and the use of AI in such models. Some theoretical work suggests that allocentric and egocentric frames of reference can operate sequentially such that information is decoded to determine a subject's egocentric orientation in the environment and vice versa (McNaughton et al., 1995; Byrne and Becker, 2007; Burgess, 2008; Clark et al., 2018). Hippocampus 16, 1026–1031. Curr. Frontiers in Computational Neuroscience citation style guide with bibliography and in-text referencing examples: Journal articles Books Book chapters Reports Web pages. The modeling complexity of the activity of place cells largely varies depending on the goal of the study. The latter circuit has also been associated with stimulus-response learning, procedural memory and reward prediction. For example, an important mechanism that links what we know about learning and memory and spatial navigation are the theories about how memories are consolidated in the brain. Attention is the important ability to flexibly control limited computational resources. In a more recent model (Bush et al., 2015) modeled grid cells to support vector navigation and provide provide a framework for testing experimental predictions. Neuron 87, 507–520.

Neuroscience-inspired artificial intelligence. Trends Neurosci. Modeling brain connections to understand Parkinsonâs disease October 3, 2017 A new model in Frontiers in Computational Neuroscience finds differences in basal ganglia connection strengths between healthy and Parkinson's disease brains. Behav. Rev. In parallel, neuroscience has also experienced significant advances in understanding the brain. HD cells are neurons that fire maximally when an animal points its head in a specific direction (Figure 2E) and a small population of HD cells can accurately track the animals HD (Peyrache et al., 2015; Xu Z. et al., 2019). (2018). Adv. Nat. There are mechanistic modeling studies in which spatial representations found in the mammalian navigation system are used to study how different frames of reference can be used to navigate when different sensory information is available. PLoS Comput. In this work, the authors trained the deep network to perform path integration using trajectories from real rodents. In the trained RNN, they found a grid-cell like representation of space in which a hexagonal periodic pattern of activity was used to keep track of the location of the agent in the environment. The initial computations involve a layer composed of two neural populations: an allocentric HD cell signal, which is generated within a subcortical circuit including anterior thalamic-to-cortical projections, and an egocentric cell signal by parietal cortex neurons which are modulated by the animals' egocentric heading relative to a landmark. The neuroscience of spatial navigation. “Learning to navigate in complex environments,” in International Conference on Learning Representations (ICLR). Science 589, 584–589. Navigation to precise “hidden” locations, or place navigation, can be performed by referencing distant landmarks (or allocentric frame of reference), or by referencing one's body orientation in relation to cues and executing a sequence of actions to the goal (an egocentric frame of reference). Description and quantitative analysis. Physiol Rev. Nat. We propose that spatial navigation is an excellent area in which these two disciplines can converge to help advance what we know about the brain. Neuronal representation of environmental boundaries in egocentric coordinates. Besides using ANNs and RL to solve spatial navigation tasks, important concepts, and mechanisms found in neuroscience experiments have been used to improve algorithms in AI. Graves, A. (2020), propose a layer-by-layer approach in which the features represented at different layers of a deep network trained to classify images can be understood as a hierarchical architecture that gradually builds the concepts exploited by the network. Model-based spatial navigation in the hippocampus-ventral striatum circuit: a computational analysis. Instead, there are developmental processes that determine pre-wired networks and mechanisms that bootstrap innate behaviors (Zador, 2019). Trends Neurosci. Even at the operational level, a definition that we can use to classify the behavior of any agent as intelligent or not, lacks consensus. Review Speed. For example, in the field of spatial navigation, knowledge about the mechanisms and brain regions involved in neural computations of cognitive maps—an internal representation of space—recently received the Nobel Prize in medicine. For example, mammals are capable of navigating in darkness using internal representations of space or using sensory cues and are capable of rapidly updating these representations when distant cues and landmarks are available (Rosenzweig et al., 2003). 183:101693. doi: 10.1016/j.pneurobio.2019.101693, Peyrache, A., Lacroix, M. M., Petersen, P. C., and Buzsáki, G. (2015). Second, by using spatial navigation as a problem to be solved by artificial systems that follow biologically relevant restrictions, we can use this as a “sandbox” to improve our analytical tools. No use, distribution or reproduction is permitted which does not comply with these terms. Although more research is needed to clarify the details about the neuroscience of the interaction between the navigation and learning systems, there is increasing progress in this area. For instance Banino et al. These simulations can help to understand how the transformation of egocentric and allocentric frames of reference can be employed by the brain when using different navigation strategies. If we accept that premise, in order to understand intelligence, natural, or artificial, we must study the brain. We thank Jenna Bailey for useful suggestions about the organization of the text. These are crucial cognitive components of intelligence which can have a great impact in neuroscience and AI. Neurosci., 28 July 2020

(2005). doi: 10.1017/S0140525X19001365, Schmidhuber, J. From this perspective, cognition is not only a product of isolated computations occurring in the brain but instead emerge from the interaction between the body and the environment (Noe and O'Regan, 2001; Thelen and Smith, 2007; Bonner and Epstein, 2017). 28, 687–697. Hippocampal replays under the scrutiny of reinforcement learning models. (2005). Then we review the neurobiology of the rodent spatial navigation system, highlighting the structures that form the main concepts of what we know about space representations in the brain: head-direction, place, grid, and border cells. (2018). 6, 609–615. Besides these models of head orientation, there is an extensive body of modeling work to understand how place is represented in the brain. (2019). Analogously and as previously mentioned, AI approaches have been used as a model of the brain to understand how spatial representations emerge and under what conditions (Banino et al., 2018; Cueva and Wei, 2018; Sorscher et al., 2019). 34th International Conference on Machine Learning (ICML) 3, 1856–1868.

Spatial navigation systems, in mammals at least, are highly robust and adaptable to different levels of sensory information and environmental conditions. A computational model for spatial navigation based on reference frames in the hippocampus, retrosplenial cortex, and posterior parietal cortex. When navigating using path integration, it is necessary for the brain to encode the spatial location and update this information with the direction and the speed of motion. Recently, DNNs have been combined with RL (termed as Deep RL) in spatial navigation tasks. Write a Review See All Reviews. Here we have applied the Random Forest (RF) method to detect differences in the pharmacological MRI (phMRI) response in rats to treatment â¦ Behav. Besides using ML as an analytical tool, there are attempts to go further and use artificial neural networks as a model to understand brain function (Musall et al., 2019; Richards et al., 2019). We suggest that by understanding how the brain carries out the cognitive processes to solve a complex task such as spatial navigation, we will be in a better place to understand how intelligent behavior might arise. Introducing variability or “noise” in the training data or the computing units (Destexhe and Contreras, 2006; Guo et al., 2018; Wu et al., 2019) (arguably modeling their biological counterparts) can shape the properties of their representations (Faisal et al., 2008).

One obvious and already successful interaction between AI and Neuroscience is to use machine learning (ML), an area of AI that applies computer science and statistical techniques in data analysis, to study complex and large datasets in Neuroscience (Vogt, 2018; Vu et al., 2018). J. Mach. We proposed that by understanding how spatial navigation is solved by the brain, we could provide useful insights to alleviate some current problems for AI. These place responses have been described as landmark or object vector cell activity (McNaughton et al., 1995; Deshmukh and Knierim, 2013; Wilber et al., 2014; Høydal et al., 2019). 19, 166–180. You can google some of the scandal surrounding their practices if you want more info on the â¦ In this modeling approach, explicit implementations and assumptions are derived from observations and hypotheses from experimental work. Science 85, 85–90. Model-free learning is proposed to be implemented by cortical-basal ganglia loops that participate in sensory-actions associations used to update the value function (Figure 1B). Therefore, imposing biologically plausible restrictions to the artificial environment, body and brain, might allow one to directly compare the solutions found by AI to their biological counterparts to determine whether these solutions might inform us about how the brain performs spatial navigation (Sinz et al., 2019). doi: 10.7554/eLife.32548, Montavon, G., Samek, W., and Müller, K.

One important aspect of the representations derived from ANNs is their robustness. Front. To conclude, by building models and agents that solve spatial navigation tasks following the restrictions imposed by the interactions of the body and environment found in biological systems, we argue that we can not only learn more about the brain but also how the processes involved in complex intelligent behavior might rise.

Biol. In addition, and more related to spatial navigation, DNNs have also been applied to decode sensory and behavioral information such as animal position and orientation from hippocampal activity (Frey et al., 2019; Xu Z. et al., 2019). (2013). (1995). How environment and self-motion combine in neural representations of space. For example, the view of a landmark, which is body-centered in nature, can be transformed into an allocentric, map-like, frame of reference.
