Abstract:Connectionist networks have been used to model a wide range of cognitive phenomena, including developmental, neuropsychological and normal adult behaviours. They have offered radical alternatives to traditional accounts of well-established facts about cognition. The primary source of the success of these models is their sensitivity to statistical regularities in their training environment. This paper provides a brief description of the connectionist toolbox and how this has developed over the past 2 decades, with particular reference to the problem of reading aloud.
