Artificial Life is the study of all phenomena of the living world through their repro¬duction in artificial systems. We argue that Artificial Life models of evolution and devel¬opment offer a new set of theoretical and methodological tools for investigating Piaget’s ideas. The concept of an Artificial Life Neural Network (ALNN) is first introduced, and contrasted with the study of other recent approaches to modeling development. We then illustrate how several key elements of Piaget’s theory of cognitive development (e.g., sensorimotor schemata, perception-action integration) can be investigated within the Ar¬tificial Life framework. We conclude by discussing possible new directions of Artificial Life research that will help to elaborate and extend Piaget’s developmental framework.
