Neural networks is a field of research which has enjoyed rapid expansion in both the academic and industrial research communities. This volume contains papers presented at the Third Annual SNN Symposium on Neural Networks to be held in Nijmegen, The Netherlands, 14 - 15 September 1995. The papers are divided into two sections: the first gives an overview of new developments in neurobiology, the cognitive sciences, robotics, vision and data modelling. The second presents working neural network solutions to real industrial problems, including process control, finance and marketing. The resulting volume gives a comprehensive view of the state of the art in 1995 and will provide essential reading for postgraduate students and academic/industrial researchers.
