This paper examines the effect of cultural learning on a population of neural networks. We compare the genotypic and phenotypic diversity of populations employing only population learning and of populations using both population and cultural learning in a dynamic environment. We show that cultural learning is capable of achieving higher fitness levels and maintains a higher level of genotypic and phenotypic diversity.
