The Institute for Adaptive and Neural Computation (ANC) fosters the study of adaptive processes in both artificial and biological systems.

The Institute encourages interdisciplinary and collaborative work bringing together the traditional disciplines of neuroscience, cognitive science, computer science, mathematics and statistics. Combined study of the adaptive nature of artificial and biological systems facilitates the many benefits accruing from treating essentially the same problem from different perspectives.

Most of our research falls within the following broad areas:
