Neural Networks:  nnet in the VR bundle

Generalized Additive Models:  There's a gam in package mgcv and package
gss does these too.  For Gaussian GAMs, see also bruto in package mda.
All of these have different strengths (and weaknesses).  None of them
do (AFAIK) gam models like gam(y ~ lo(x1,x2)) as S does (using loess
not splines).
