An enthusiastic and well-qualified post-doctoral researcher is required to develop a
biologically inspired neural network model that will be used to explore neural mechanisms
underlying cognitive and behavioural development. The research will involve extending an
existing hierarchical neural network in order to simulate the learning of visual-spatial
representations in the dorsal pathway. The model will be used to incrementally learn to
control visually guided behaviour in a stereo-vision robot head and will be evaluated by
simulating infant behavioural data. This post is funded by EPSRC grant EP/D062225/1
