There is experimental evidence of neuronal groups projecting widely in the brain which are associated to state functions, like those involved in attention and mood changes. There has been a growing interest in the discussion of the brain functions as being performed by specialized modular systems that can be recombined. It is also suggested the existence of a dichotomy in the neural substrates, which could result or not in the aversion behavior. In the present work, we propose a model that focus on the interaction between modules. This interaction take the form of a modulatory mechanism. In order to explore this model, our tests were conceived with the aim of representing the transposition of an obstacle by a hypothetical organism.
