  1. Connectionist Modelling in Cognitive Neuropsychology: A Case Study

    A Special Issue of Cognitive Neuropsychology

    By David C. Plaut, Tim Shallice

    Computational models offer tools for exploring the nature of human cognitive processes. In connectionist, neural network, or parallel distributed processing models, information processing takes the form of cooperative and competitive interactions among many simple, neuron-like processing units....

  2. Oscillations in Neural Systems

    Edited by Daniel S. Levine, Vincent R. Brown, Timothy Shirey

    Series: INNS Series of Texts, Monographs, and Proceedings Series

    This book is the fourth in a series based on conferences sponsored by the Metroplex Institute for Neural Dynamics (MIND), an interdisciplinary organization of Dallas-Fort Worth area neural network professionals in both academia and industry. This topic was chosen as the focus for this special issue...

  3. Representation and Processing of Spatial Expressions

    Edited by Patrick Olivier, Klaus-Peter Gapp

    Coping with spatial expressions in a plausible manner is a crucial problem in a number of research fields, specifically cognitive science, artificial intelligence, psychology, and linguistics. This volume contains a set of theoretical analyses as well as accounts of applications which deal with the...

  4. Goal-based Decision Making

    An Interpersonal Model

    By Stephen Slade

    This work presents a goal-based model of decision making in which the relative priorities of goals drive the decision process -- a psychological alternative to traditional decision analysis. Building on the work of Schank and Abelson, the author uses goals as the basis for a model of interpersonal...

  5. Visual Navigation

    From Biological Systems To Unmanned Ground Vehicles

    Edited by Yiannis Aloimonos

    All biological systems with vision move about their environments and successfully perform many tasks. The same capabilities are needed in the world of robots. To that end, recent results in empirical fields that study insects and primates, as well as in theoretical and applied disciplines that...

  6. Toward A New Behaviorism

    The Case Against Perceptual Reductionism

    By William R. Uttal

    This volume examines the scientific basis of reductionist approaches to understanding visual perception. The author makes the provocative argument that contemporary neuroscience and cognitive science have gone off on a wild-goose chase in the search for reductionist explanations of perceptual...

  7. Proceedings of the International Workshop on Applications of Neural Networks to Telecommunications

    Edited by Joshua Alspector, Rodney Goodman

    The world is witnessing the rapid evolution of its own nervous system by an unparalleled growth in communication technology. Like the evolution of the nervous systems in animals, this growth is being driven by a survival-of-the-fittest-mechanism. In telecommunications, the entities that fuel this...

  8. Mathematical Perspectives on Neural Networks

    Edited by Paul Smolensky, Michael C. Mozer

    Recent years have seen an explosion of new mathematical results on learning and processing in neural networks. This body of results rests on a breadth of mathematical background which even few specialists possess. In a format intermediate between a textbook and a collection of research articles,...

  9. The Structure of Long-term Memory

    A Connectivity Model of Semantic Processing

    By Wolfgang Klimesch

    How is information stored and retrieved from long-term memory? It is argued that any systematic attempt to answer this question should be based on a particular set of specific representational assumptions that have led to the development of a new memory theory -- the connectivity model. One of the...

  10. Expertise and Technology

    Cognition & Human-computer Cooperation

    Edited by Jean-Michel Hoc, Pietro C. Cacciabue

    Technological development has changed the nature of industrial production so that it is no longer a question of humans working with a machine, but rather that a joint human machine system is performing the task. This development, which started in the 1940s, has become even more pronounced with the...
