  abstract =     "A primary goal of evolutionary robotics is to create
                 systems that are as robust and adaptive as the human
                 body. Moving toward this goal often involves training
                 control systems that process sensory information in a
                 way similar to humans. Artificial neural networks have
                 been an increasingly popular option for this because
                 they consist of processing units that approximate the
                 synaptic activity of biological signal processing
                 units, i.e. neurons. In this paper we train a nonlinear
                 recurrent spino-neuromuscular system (SNMS) model and
                 compare the performance of genetic algorithms (GA)s,
                 particle swarm optimisers (PSO)s, and GA/PSO hybrids.
                 Several key features of the SNMS model have previously
                 been modelled individually but have not been combined
                 into a single model as is done here. The results show
                 that each algorithm produces fit solutions and
                 generates fundamental biological behaviours, such as
                 tonic tension behaviors and triceps activation
                 patterns, that are not explicitly trained.",
