Wormcraft is a worm-based simulator that converts sensory input to behavioral output. Users can build diverse neural networks using the open-ended Wormcraft GUI. Wormcraft simulates how worms perform in an environment with the user-created neural network.

Users can benefit from Wormcraft in several ways. First and foremost, Wormcraft is a great learning tool for anyone with an interest in neuroscience or robotics. Users will quickly gain an intuition for how to string together neurons in order to solve different problems. Also, researchers (especially C. elegans researchers) will be able to test their models without having to build their own simulation framework.
