I present a cognitive model, dubbed BioSLIE, that integrates and extends recent advances in: 1) distributed, structuresensitive representation; 2) neurocomputational modeling; and 3) our understanding of the neuroanatomy of inference. As a result, BioSLIE is biologically detailed, learns different behaviors in different contexts, and exhibits systematic, structuresensitive generalization. Here, BioSLIE is applied to the Wason card selection task. Its performance meets Cosmides’ (1989) challenge… CONTINUE READING
