Connectionist Models of Learning, Development and Evolution comprises a selection of papers presented at the Sixth Neural Computation and Psychology Workshop - the only international workshop devoted to connectionist models of psychological phenomena.
With a main theme of neural network modelling in the areas of evolution, learning, and development, the papers are organized into six sections:
The neural basis of cognition
Development and category learning
Implicit learning
Social cognition Evolution
Covering artificial intelligence, mathematics, psychology, neurobiology, and philosophy, it will be an invaluable reference work for researchers and students working on connectionist modelling in computer science and psychology, or in any area related to cognitive science.
