The LNSC (Laboratory for Natural and Simulated Cognition) is part of the Department of Psychology, at McGill University. It uses neural networks for modeling human learning. Several models are implemented and reproduce psychological data.

I invented at LNSC a new model of neural network. This model is based on the idea that learning occurs sequentially: one learns one task after the other, and previously learned tasks benefit new tasks. I started from the Cascacade Correlation learning algorithm, to which I added the ability to recruit a previously learned module, instead of just a unit.
