A Connectionist Perspective on Repetition Priming

Show Summary Details


This chapter aims to describe the connectionist perspective on repetition priming. The first section provides an overview of the connectionist framework, and more specifically, connectionist models of word perception. The section that follows reviews empirical findings concerning several different issues related to repetition priming — the purpose of this section is both to show how the network approach has served to generate new hypotheses and to demonstrate how this approach allows for new conceptualizations of some old ideas. The chapter closes with a discussion of the relationship between the connectionist approach and accounts which have developed within the activation and memory traditions.
