TRACX: a recognition-based connectionist framework for sequence segmentation and chunk extraction.
Individuals of all ages extract structure from the sequences of patterns they encounter in their environment, an ability that is at the very heart of cognition. Exactly what underlies this abilityExpand

Neuroconstructivism - I: How the Brain Constructs Cognition
Book synopsis: What are the processes, from conception to adulthood, that enable a single cell to grow into a sentient adult? The processes that occur along the way are so complex that any attempt toExpand

Analogy as relational priming: a developmental and computational perspective on the origins of a complex cognitive skill.
The development of analogical reasoning has traditionally been understood in terms of theories of adult competence. This approach emphasizes structured representations and structure mapping. InExpand

Fusion of visual cues is not mandatory in children
Human adults can go beyond the limits of individual sensory systems’ resolutions by integrating multiple estimates (e.g., vision and touch) to reduce uncertainty. Little is known about how thisExpand

A connectionist account of asymmetric category learning in early infancy.
Young infants show unexplained asymmetries in the exclusivity of categories formed on the basis of visually presented stimuli. A connectionist model is described that shows similar exclusivityExpand

The role of bottom-up processing in perceptual categorization by 3- to 4-month-old infants: simulations and data.
Disentangling bottom-up and top-down processing in adult category learning is notoriously difficult. Studying category learning in infancy provides a simple way of exploring category learning whileExpand

Human handedness: An inherited evolutionary trait
Our objective was to demonstrate that human population-level, right-handedness, is not species specific, precipitated from language areas in the brain, but rather is context specific and inheritedExpand

The Neural Basis of Perceptual Category Learning in Human Infants
We measured looking times and ERPs to examine the cognitive and brain bases of perceptual category learning in 6-month-old infants. In Experiment 1, we showed that categorization and exemplarExpand

Modeling Cognitive Development on Balance Scale Phenomena
We used cascade-correlation to model human cognitive development on a well studied psychological task, the balance scale. In balance scale experiments, the child is asked to predict the outcome ofExpand
