Y1 - 2000/// N2 - We have implemented RatCog, a Graphical User Interface (GUI) radial-maze simulation tool providing various computational models of rats. Rat models are loaded as runtime plugin files, and an Application Programming Interface (API) enables additional plugins to be created. One implemented plugin is a back-propagation trained connectionist model. GUI features include maze graphics and performance statistics. The GUI makes it easier to use these computional models, while the plugins make the models widely available. AV - public KW - computational models rat spatial behavior ER -
