Schema induction and analogical transfer
An analysis of the process of analogical thinking predicts that analogies will be noticed on the basis of semantic retrieval cues and that the induction of a general schema from concrete analogs willExpand

Analogical problem solving
Abstract The use of an analogy from a semantically distant domain to guide the problemsolving process was investigated. The representation of analogy in memory and processes involved in the use ofExpand

Analogical Mapping by Constraint Satisfaction
A theory of analogical mapping between source and target analogs based upon interacting structural, semantic, and pragmatic constraints is proposed here. The structural constraint of isomorphismExpand

Distributed representations of structure : A theory of analogical access and mapping
We describe an integrated theory of analogical access and mapping, instantiated in a computational model called LISA (Learning and Inference with Schemas and Analogies). LISA represents predicatesExpand

Pragmatic reasoning schemas
We propose that people typically reason about realistic situations using neither content-free syntactic inference rules nor representations of specific experiences. Rather, people reason usingExpand

Induction: Processes of Inference, Learning, and Discovery
Two psychologists, a computer scientist, and a philosopher have collaborated to present a framework for understanding processes of inductive reasoning and learning in organisms and machines. TheirsExpand

Recruitment of anterior dorsolateral prefrontal cortex in human reasoning: a parametric study of relational complexity.
Reasoning and problem solving depend on the ability to represent and integrate complex relationships among stimuli. For example, deciding whether an animal is dangerous requires integratingExpand

Children's development of analogical reasoning: insights from scene analogy problems.
We explored how relational complexity and featural distraction, as varied in scene analogy problems, affect children's analogical reasoning performance. Results with 3- and 4-year-olds, 6- andExpand

Bidirectional Reasoning in Decision Making by Constraint Satisfaction
Recent constraint satisfaction models of explanation, analogy, and decision making claim that these processes are influenced by bidirectional constraints that promote coherence. College students wereExpand
