Overview

The recent resurgence in neural network and connectionist approaches to modeling cognitive phenomena has led to a strong backlash from the classical cognitive psychology framework. Neurodynamics and Psychologypresents a collection of recent work that explores the connectionist versus the classical debate from a variety of perspectives, putting forward the case that the study of neurodynamics may represent the only way forward in the search for solutions to recently emerging problems for neural network models across a wide range of diverse research areas.
The book is divided into three parts: Part I covers the general area of attention and action, Part II examines the psychobiology of time and the role of temporal mechanisms in providing a solution to the psychologically important binding problem, and Part III reports on the computational modeling of the dynamic psychological processing involved in language and memory.
Neurodynamics and Psychology is of great interest to researchers in the areas of cognitive psychology, cognitive neuroscience, neural networks and neuropsychology.

• The recent resurgence in neural network and connectionist approaches to modelling cognitive phenomena has led to a backlash from the classical cognitive psychology framework. The purpose of this book is to present recent work which explores the connectionist v classical debate, and produces a balanced view of work in the area.

• The book argues that neurodynamics may represent the only way forward in the search for solutions to recently-emerging problems across a wide range of apparently idverse research areas.
