          Electronic media can create a promising ecosystem. In the realm of this ecosystem a curious art focuses on playing by analogy, in an experimental way, to understand better the processes of individuation of the biological systems.

          Within this technological framework, this play visualizes how things work and function in the ecosystem. The play has already gone beyond the limits from which we are beginning to intuit the disturbing singularity of being observed in our own operating rules. Exteriority is expected from the processes of individuation of the physical objects. Exteriority is also being ambushed by an increasingly autonomous interiority, a complex withdrawal which already begins to emulate the way of being curious of the living beings, those who in turn are interested in, for better or worse, knowing us.

          Invertebrate central pattern generator circuits.

          There are now a reasonable number of invertebrate central pattern generator (CPG) circuits described in sufficient detail that a mechanistic explanation of how they work is possible. These small circuits represent the best-understood neural circuits with which to investigate how cell-to-cell synaptic connections and individual channel conductances combine to generate rhythmic and patterned output. In this review, some of the main lessons that have appeared from this analysis are discussed and concrete examples of circuits ranging from single phase to multiple phase patterns are described. While it is clear that the cellular components of any CPG are basically the same, the topology of the circuits have evolved independently to meet the particular motor requirements of each individual organism and only a few general principles of circuit operation have emerged. The principal usefulness of small systems in relation to the brain is to demonstrate in detail how cellular infrastructure can be used to generate rhythmicity and form specialized patterns in a way that may suggest how similar processes might occur in more complex systems. But some of the problems and challenges associated with applying data from invertebrate preparations to the brain are also discussed. Finally, I discuss why it is useful to have well-defined circuits with which to examine various computational models that can be validated experimentally and possibly applied to brain circuits when the details of such circuits become available.

              La agencia técnica

              Este artículo analiza la agencia técnica desde las dos dimensiones básicas que constituyen el espacio normativo de la tecnología. Por una parte, la apertura del espacio de posibilidades de transformación del mundo. Esta dimensión está enlazada a la valoración de la novedad como componente esencial del progreso técnico y al principio de precaución como único principio político de la tecnología. Por otra parte, la capacidad de realización efectiva de las acciones técnicas que se pretenden. Esta dimensión se refiere al grado de control sobre un aspecto de la realidad que introduce una nueva tecnología. Finalmente, el artículo reflexiona sobre los distintos sentidos que se han atribuido a la idea de control y sus respectivas consecuencias filosóficas para pensar la agencia humana en el ámbito de la tecnología.
