Abstract : Multi-disciplinary research facilities are established for study of spatial search behaviors, combining approaches of experimental animal learning, neural network theory, and robotics engineering. Experimental results have informed neural network designs for spatial landmark learning and reasoning in various tasks of complex search. The neural network theoretical designs, in turn, have been used in the design of semiautonomous robotic devices capable of efficient search.
