Mutual access and mutual dependence of conceptual components (Comment on Humphreys and Forde)
Behavioral and Brain Sciences, June 2001, 24(3), 490-492
Year of publication:
The HIT model comes close to a view suggested by Donald Hebb, that cognitive representations are organized as distributed neuron webs, cell assemblies, whose components are mutually connected and whose internal connections provide continuous information exchange among sub-components of the representation. Two questions are asked related to (1) the organization of internal connections of a concept representation and (2) the conditions under which information exchange between components are assumed in the HIT model.
