Reports for the project eSMCs

The project eSMCs: Extending SensoriMotor Contingencies to Cognition (1/2011-12/2014, EU FP7-ICT-2009-6 no: 270212) has recently come to an end. You can find more information on the project website. Here I include the reports delivered by our team. They summarize what was work-in-progress at the time of writing, most of which was later published.
