Neuromodulation is considered a key factor in learning and memory in biological neural networks. Recent computational models of modulated plasticity have shown increased learning capabilities also in artificial neural networks. In this study, a rewardbased dynamic scenario is employed to test networks evolved with modulatory dynamics. The analysis on the networks shows that neuromodulation does not only allow for better learning, but accelerates the computation in decision processes. This… CONTINUE READING
