  1. Human and Machine Thinking

    By Philip N. Johnson-Laird

    This book aims to reach an understanding of how the mind carries out three sorts of thinking -- deduction, induction, and creation -- to consider what goes right and what goes wrong, and to explore computational models of these sorts of thinking. Written for students of the mind -- psychologists,...

  2. 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....

  3. Contemporary Neuropsychology and the Legacy of Luria

    Edited by Elkhonon Goldberg

    Best known as a founding father of neuropsychology, Luria is remembered for his clinical approach, which in many ways foreshadowed and served as the basis for the currently popular "process approach" to neuropsychological diagnosis. Although he never completed the job of designing a general theory...

  4. Philosophy and Connectionist Theory

    Edited by William Ramsey, David E. Rumelhart

    The philosophy of cognitive science has recently become one of the most exciting and fastest growing domains of philosophical inquiry and analysis. Until the early 1980s, nearly all of the models developed treated cognitive processes -- like problem solving, language comprehension, memory, and...

  5. 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...

  7. 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...

  8. 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...

  9. Origins

    Brain and Self Organization

    Edited by Karl H. Pribram

    The result of the second Appalachian conference on neurodynamics, this volume focuses on the problem of "order," its origins, evolution, and future. Central to this concern lies our understanding of time. Both classical and quantum physics have developed their conceptions within a framework of time...

  10. 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...
