About this book

Studies of the evolution of animal signals and sensory behaviour have more recently shifted from considering extrinsic (environmental) determinants to intrinsic (physiological) ones. The drive behind this change has been the increasing availability of neural network models.

With contributions from experts in the field, this book provides a complete survey of artificial neural networks.
