Connectionist modelling and neural network applications had become a major sub-field of cognitive science by the mid-1990s. In this ground-breaking book, originally published in 1995, leading connectionists shed light on current approaches to memory and language modelling at the time.

The book is divided into four sections: Memory; Reading; Computation and statistics; Speech and audition. Each section is introduced and set in context by the editors, allowing a wide range of language and memory issues to be addressed in one volume.

This authoritative advanced level book will still be of interest for all engaged in connectionist research and the related areas of cognitive science concerned with language and memory.

About the Series

Psychology Library Editions: Memory

Memory is one of the core areas of academic research in cognitive psychology. Psychology Library Editions: Memory brings together a series of previously out-of-print titles, available as a 27-volume set or as individual volumes. The authors come from diverse backgrounds and many of them are now leading experts in their fields. The majority of titles were originally published in the 1970s and 1980s and reflect early research in a number of key areas. The volumes cover topics such as memory development in children; memory and aging; memory and thinking; memory and language; working memory; and memory disorders, to name but a few. This is a great opportunity to obtain a valuable resource tracing the development of a major field of psychology.
