British scientists have acquired a humanoid robot which they claim would lead to a deeper and better understanding of human intelligence.

A team at Imperial College London, which has acquired the robot, has claimed that iCub, almost about the size of a three-year-old child, will actually facilitate their research into cognition- the process of knowing, including awareness, perception, reasoning and judgement.

In fact, according to the scientists, they want to learn more about how humans use cognition to interact with their world. They believe iCub's human-like body will help them to understand how this is done.

iCub has mechanical joints that enable it to move its head, arms, fingers, eyes and legs similarly to the way that humans do.

"Nature developed cognition for us in order to make us better at interacting with the physical and social world. If we want to understand the nature of cognition better then we really need to understand it in the context of something that moves or interacts with objects. That is where iCub can help us," Prof Murray Shanahan, who led the team, said.

The team will test its theories about cognition by creating a computer simulation of brain, which will replicate how neurons in real brains communicate through short bursts of electrical energy.
