Practical implementation of the concept of reward has deep implications on what artificial-life based systems can learn and how they learn it. How can a system distinguish between useful behavior and harmful behavior? In this paper we implement reward/punishment as the removal/application of a stimulation to a recurrent spiking neural network with(More)
Robot experiments using real cultured neuronal cells as controllers are a way to explore the idea of embodied cognition. Real cultured neuronal cells have innate plasticity, and a sensorimotor coupling is expected to develop a neural circuit. Previous studies have suggested that a dissociated neuronal culture has two properties: i) modifiability of(More)
Learning based on networks of real neurons, and learning based on biologically inspired models of neural networks, have yet to find general learning rules leading to widespread applications. In this paper, we argue for the existence of a principle allowing to steer the dynamics of a biologically inspired neural network. Using carefully timed external(More)
This paper investigates localization of sound sources in a real environment using a tablet device. For the localization, we use build-in sensors on a tablet device and additionally mount a cover with a microphone array. Because of the flat shape and limited sensor performance, the localization has mainly the following three issues; 1) the flat microphone(More)
