Models of Cognition : Neurological possibility does not indicate neurological plausibility

  title={Models of Cognition : Neurological possibility does not indicate neurological plausibility},
  author={Peter R. Krebs},
Many activities in Cognitive Science involve complex computer models and simulations of both theoretical and real entities. Artificial Intelligence and the study of artificial neural nets in particular, are seen as major contributors in the quest for understanding the human mind. Computational models serve as objects of experimentation, and results from these virtual experiments are tacitly included in the framework of empirical science. Cognitive functions, like learning to speak, or… CONTINUE READING
