Sample text

Activity is very dynamic and varies continuously even during repeated performances by the same subject. Accordingly, when we develop a template for activity as a standardized method of performance, it is merely an approximation that approaches the real activity. Analyses and description of activity must account for natural fuzziness and nonlinear dynamics (chaos) in the regulation of human activity (Karwowski, 1991, 1992, 2000). Since activity is variable, its performance must be modeled probabilistically, as well as deterministically.

There are several approaches to the study of activity: social–historical, objectively logical, and individually psychological. The activity of a person is determined not only by individual development but also by the sociohistorical development of society (Vygotsky, 1978). A person learns norms, standards, and rules of behavior that were developed by society during the course of its development. Consequently, culture is an important element of activity. In activity theory, culture is viewed as a set of shared social meanings that are internalized by individuals during cooperative activity.

This process involved the receipt of information about the result of actions. This is an important mechanism for the regulation and correction of human or animal acts. “Acceptor of Effect” enables one to compare the results of an act with requirements. These requirements are formulated in terms of a neural system mechanism that functions as a template with which actual, resulting states of neural systems are compared. Based on this, he developed a functional self-regulative model of conditioned reflex to provide an alternative explanation of conditioning.
