Cerebellar Model Arithmetic Computer
- A neural computing model based on observations made of the functional structure of the biological cerebellum
was developed and introduced by James Albus
in his book: Brains Behavior & Robotics
. It is based on work by David Marr
which produced detailed observational knowledge of the functional structures within the cerebellum.
In his book, Albus constructed a CMAC and connected it to a robot arm, which was then trained to perform various motions. In his earlier papers, Albus was concerned, primarily, with robotics.
In that work, he referred to a very similar model as The Cerebellar Model Articulation Controller
