Is consumer memory (really) Dirichlet-like?
This demonstration reinforces the suitability of the Dirichlet model for predicting a brand’s retrieval propensity through the analysis of the network of concepts consumers associate with the brand in their memory, collected by the use of surveys.
Computer-Based Mapping for Curriculum
This article describes the results of a three-month experiment in the use of computer-based semantic networks for curriculum development. A team of doctoral and master's degree students develcped a
Evaluating spreading activation for soft information fusion
An f-measure evaluation of two spreading activation algorithms and their parameters is given using a soft information fusion process in a counterinsurgency domain.

Experimental result shows that the applying of vision navigation on cognitive model in ACT-R architecture is reliable, which is a new combination of cognitive science and artificial intelligence.
An associative index model for the results list based on Vannevar Bush's selection concept
The associative index model is suggested, an ad-hoc, user-derived indexing solution based on Vannevar Bush's description of an associativeindexing approach for his memex machine, which appears better suited for an exploratory information search.
Effects of color and animation on visual short-term memory in computer-environment learning tasks
Findings suggest achromatic color information interferes with visual STM learning tasks in specific contexts and that the use of animations in visual STm learning tasks may interfere with complex visualSTM learning.
Fan effects in event-based prospective memory
Three experiments investigated whether event-based prospective memory was affected by the associative fan of the cues to be detected, and confirmed that the absolute strength of an association does not affect performance, rather the number of associations does.
