efference copy The notion that, in generating movement commands, the nervous
system also generates an expected set of sensory inputs that will result from
the movement, the comparison of expected and actual serving to warn of problems
in the execution of the movement. empty niche A proven niche space that is
temporarily unoccupied by a tenant species. error correction Schemes that
detect (in the manner of checksums) but also correct transmission errors using
some form of redundancy; commonly used in tape backups. faux fax My coinage for
a faxlike telecopying process, one that reproduces a spatiotemporal pattern some
distance away.
