Abstract. In this paper we present Marco Somalvico's and our research on multiagent
systems through the parallelism with the three parts of the human cerebral cortex
devoted to self-preservation, to emotions and feelings, and to the activities related to the
use of symbolic language. The proposed taxonomy, firstly inspired by Marco himself,
reflects his tendency to abstraction and to bridging together different disciplines.
1. INTRODUCTION
According to Marco Somalvico's innate ability to find fruitful connections between
different disciplines, in this paper we discuss the researches he stimulated about
multiagent systems in the light of the metaphor of the "three units of the human brain"
[22] (see also the brief summary in [21]). Throughout the biological human evolution,
the cerebral cortex has developed three components that progressively appeared and
became superposed: the oldest (archipallium), located underneath and to the back; the
next one (paleopallium), resting on an intermediate position, and the most recent
