Overview

Research on connectionist models is one of the most exciting areas in cognitive science, and this pioneering book review s theoretical, historical and clinical issues, including the contribution of neural network models to diagnosis, pharmacotherapy and psychotherapy. It will be read with interest by psychiatrists, psychologists and other clinicians and researchers in psychopathology, and will appeal to those working in cognitive science and artificial intelligence, and particularly those interested in neural network or connectionist models.
