Abstract: Sensorimotor processing is a critical function of the human brain with multiple cortical areas specialized for sensory recognition or motor execution. Although there has been considerable research into sensorimotor control in humans, the steps between sensory recognition and motor execution are not fully understood. This thesis investigates different aspects of sensorimotor processing in the human brain and proposes approaches to cognitive architectures. Here, I describe a series of six studies: an examination of sensorimotor processing in the human brain, evaluation of new mobile EEG systems for modern sensorimotor paradigms, investigation of a balance between memorization and active sampling of visual information in a sensorimotor task, and three studies on cognitive architectures for spatial reasoning and navigation in 2D environments.
