Interactions between Motivation, Emotion and Attention: From Biology to Robotics.

Abstract
A model of emotional conditioning is ex-

tended with a cortical model where stimulus

codes compete for activation. This system is

combined with motivational inputs that mod-

ulate both sensory and emotional processing.

The extended model is able to reproduce the

attentional blocking effect. It can also learn to

switch between different sensory targets when

the motivational state changes. The relation

between motivation, emotion, and attention

control is learned through the presentation of

different stimuli in combination with reward.

The model has also been used to control sac-

cades in a stereo vision head that learns... (More)
