Understanding the neural circuit

We have the unique opportunity to give a definitive answer as to how associative learning is integrated with action in a biological brain by combining neurogenetics for functional dissection with modelling in a one-to-one description of neural computation in the larvae linked … Continue reading

Enhancing the learning capabilities of machines

Our detailed probing of the specific motor control and neural circuit in the Pavlovian behavioural paradigm will be complemented by a more wide-ranging evaluation of the complete capacity of the larvae, and its reproduction in a real-world robotic device. How does operant … Continue reading

Understanding how associative learning is embedded in behavioural control

We want machines that are able to learn as quickly and effectively as animals. Learning in biological systems is not just acquisition of information, but the ability to change – improve – behaviour. A mechanism for improved action choice seems apparent for … Continue reading
