Houghton G, Ed. (2005) Connectionist Models in Cognitive Psychology Psychology Press.

Review of neural network modelling in core areas of cognitive psychology including: memory and learning, language (written and spoken), cognitive development, cognitive control, attention and action. The chapters discuss neural network models in a clear and accessible style, with an emphasis on the relationship between the models and relevant data drawn from psychology, neuropsychology and cognitive neuroscience. Includes chapters by George and Marco dealing with topics covered in the course.
