A minimal animat architecture, consisting only of a set of autonomous, direct, and continuously active sensorimotor links, is shown to support a full range of ‘action selection’ phenomena. A genetic algorithm is used to engineer the activation functions supported by these links. No ‘actions’ are ‘selected’ in this model, and the use of artificial evolution means that there is no artificial separation of the problems of ‘link design’ from ‘link fusion’. Implications are drawn for how the concepts of ‘action selection’ and ‘selective attention’ may relate to the idea of coherence between sensorimotor processes.
