You might be interested in checking the work of R.D. Beer (Case Western
Reserve Univ., Cleveland, Ohio) on computational invertebrate
neuroethology. For example:

R.D. Beer "Intelligence as Adaptive Behavior: An Experiment in
Computational Neuroethology", Academic Press, 1990.

Beer, R.D., Ritzmann, R.E. and McKenna, T., Eds. (1993). Biological Neural
Networks in Invertebrate Neuroethology and Robotics. Academic Press.

A complete list of Beer's work can be found at

Hope this helps.
