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 two types of dynamic environment: one where a single change occurs and one where changes are more frequent. We show that cultural learning is capable of achieving higher fitness levels and maintains a higher level of genotypic and phenotypic diversity.
