Neural network models have been criticized for their inability to make use of compositional representations . In this paper, we describe a series of psychological phenomena that demonstrate the role of structured representations in cognition . These findings suggest that people compare relational representations via a process of structural alignment . This process will have to be captured by any model of cognition, symbolic or subsymbolic .
