A computational model of motivation based on physiological state and incentive value: a neuroscientific perspective.

Research Abstract: 

Project: Cuayollotl —A Bio-inspired Cognitive Architecture

We are working on the development of a computational architecture of motivation based on Neuroscience and Psychology. Motivation is a process that begins a guided behavior and holds it, based on an impulse or stimuli arising in the human form internal o external.

The internal impulses are only physiological needs that it is the result of homeostatic imbalance. Some physiological needs are hunger, thirst, corporal temperature, sleep, etc. Thus, the impulse starts a behavior, satisfied the need, and to finishes the behavior, with the objective of return a homeostatic or stable state.

Besides homeostatic influences to satisfy a need, there are hedonic, where the emotional system plays a role important.
