Spiking neuron controllers for a sound localising robot

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Female crickets can find a mate by recognising and walking or flying towards the male calling song. Using a robot to model this behaviour, we explore of the functionality of identified neurons in the insect, including the roles of multiple sensory fibres, mutually inhibitory connections, and brain neurons with pattern-filtering properties.
