  abstract =     "In most applications of neuro-evolution, each
                 individual in the population represents a complete
                 neural network. Retent work on the SANE system,
                 however, has demonstrated that evolving individual
                 neurons often produces a more efficient genetic search.
                 This paper demonstrates that while SANE can solve easy
                 tasks very quickly, it often stalls in larger problems.
                 A hierarchical approach to neuro-evolution is presented
                 that overcomes SANE' s difficul ties by integrating
                 both a neuron-level exploratory search and a
                 network-level exploitive search. In a robot arm
                 manipulation task, the hierarchical approach
                 outperforms both a neuron-based search and a
                 network-based search.",
