vasopressin on CRF secretion (PLOTSKY ? al., 1985) suggest interactive processing of afferent signals by the magnocellular (vasopressinergic) and par- vocellular (CRF/vasopressinergic) neurons of the hypothalamic para- ventricular nucleus. These afferent signals have not been explored in detail. However, it

(2) Offline use of forward models: In order to explore the relationship between sensory anticipation and higher vestibular processing, we propose to use a motion discrimination task, for which the vestibular afferent signals are relatively well understood, such as rotation

, feeding behaviour may be released by a cell sensitive to sugars, and avoidance behaviour by a cell sensi- tive to salts. Thus we have here one of the rare cases where the afferent signal evoking a behavioural response is open to complete quantitative specification. This provides a promising starting point

be caused by afferent signals from the mechanoreceptors of the exopod. An adjustment in the phase of the beating of bilaterally symmetrical flagella may also be established in the same way. This model (like that by Burrows & Willows, 1969) may be speculative, because there is no evidence concerning

1. Introduction Our sensory systems underlie our perception of our own body and of its interaction with the external word. Yet, the role played by afferent signals, arising for instance from visual, somatosensory and vestibular receptors, goes far beyond perceptual-related processes. In

. (1991). Rather than a stimulus' causing a response, it is the response which must occur first, and then act on the incoming afferent signals to produce a stimulus. We might call this enactive approach the current "Copernican revolution" in cognitive theory and neuroscience. Notice the convergence with

turns. Animals which were pushed passively through different deviations performed differen- ciated reverse turns too. From this result it was concluded that afferent signals were used as information about the forced turning parameters. In series with partial bendings of the body during the forced turn

between the skin and the bumpy hillside as it slides. The population of all sensory afferent signals is divided into two classes. One rapidly varying set of signals correlates with vestibular signals of head rotation and acceleration. This reflects the somatosensory signals elicited by the contact with
