Can't Get You Out of My Head: A Connectionist Model of Cyclic Rehearsal [chapter]

Herbert Jaeger, Douglas Eck
Modeling Communication with Robots and Virtual Humans  
Humans are able to perform a large variety of periodic activities in different modes, for instance cyclic rehearsal of phone numbers, humming a melody sniplet over and over again.  ...  From an abstract mathematical perspective, this implies that the brain, as a dynamical system, (1) hosts a very large number of cyclic attractors, such that (2) if the system is driven by external input  ...  A well-known case is the cyclic rehearsal subsystem in Baddeley's influential model of acoustic/linguistic STM [3] , where in the phonological loop cyclic rehearsal prevents memory traces from decaying  ...

In Defense of Some `Cartesian' Assumptions Concerning the Brain and Its Operation

Rick Grush
2003 Biology & Philosophy  
I describe a much more sophisticated model of sensorimotor processing that is not only more powerful and robust than simple closed-loop control, but for which there is great evidence that it is implemented  ...  Both of these strands depend not only on a shift of emphasis from higher cognitive functions to things like sensorimotor processes, but also depend on a certain understanding of how sensorimotor processes  ...  Acknowledgements This research was supported in part by a grant from the McDonnell Foundation, administered through the McDonnell Project in Philosophy and the Neuroscience.  ...
