In this paper we investigate a novel approach to the evolutionary development of autonomous situated agents based on the assumption that the neural mechanisms underlying ontogenetic learning are themselves developed and shaped by the evolutionary process. A genetic algorithm is used to evolve neural structures that can be continuously modi ed during life according to the mechanisms speci ed in the genotype. The evolutionary process is carried out on a real mobile robot. The analysis of one of… CONTINUE READING
