How are these questions to be answered? Should psychologists rely on introspection? On laboratory experiementation? On neuropsychology? Or were the behaviourists right all along in insisting that talk about the mind, and mental processes, is mere mystery-mongering? Increasingly many psychologists seek to understand the mind in terms of concepts drawn from computer science and artifical intelligence. They formulate and test their theories not only by reference to experiements on human beings but also by using the techniques are of computer-modelling. This book shows how these tehcniques are being applied to a wide range of psychological questions, including vision, language, reasoning, and learning. Contents: Preface. Acknowledgements.
