Neuroethology, Computational

Dave Cliff

In recent years, a number of neural network researchers have used the term computational neuroethology to describe a specific approach to neuroethology, the intersection of neuroscience (the study of nervous systems) and ethology (the study of animal behavior). Experiments in computational neuroethology can complement classical computational neuroscience studies of neural control of behavior in animals, and can help in the design of artificial autonomous agents. This is a brief introductory review article. (To appear in: M. A. Arbib (editor) "Handbook of Brain Theory and Neural Networks", MIT Press 1995.)
