The adoption of a framework of biological development is suitable for the construction of artificial systems. The biological developmental approach provides unique insights on how to build highly complex and adaptable artificial systems. In turn, it might aid neuroscientists to understand better the human brain functions involved in sensori-motor control. An example of the acquisition of goal-directed reaching in human infants and the mechanisms of biological development is demonstrated. How these mechanisms can be adapted to the artificial world, are then probed.
