Development is simulated by (a) increasing the resolution of visual and tactile systems, (b) freezing and freeing mechanical degrees of freedom, and (c) adding neuronal units to the neural control architecture. Our experimental results show that a system starting with a low-resolution sensory system, a low precision motor system, and a low complexity neural structure, learns faster that a system which is more complex at the beginning.
