Profile of the group: 

The Darwinian neurodynamics research group focuses on identifying and analyzing evolutionary dynamics as it unfolds over neural architectures. We investigate evolutionary training of artificial neural networks, analogies between evolutionary and learning dynamics (evolution in learning, learning in evolution), structural and dynamical similarities between associative neural networks and gene regulatory networks, and theoretical and experimental approaches to search for a potential Darwinian dynamics underlying higher cognitive functioning.

We apply a wide range of approaches from mathematical and computational modeling to evolutionary psychology experiments.

Our work is currently supported by a Templeton and an Élvonal (Frontline) grant.
