How to decide whether a neural representation is a cognitive concept?

  • Maartje E. J. Raijmakers (a1) and Peter C. M. Molenaar (a1)


A distinction should be made between the formation of stimulus-driven associations and cognitive concepts. To test the learning mode of a neural network, we propose a simple and classic input-output test: the discrimination shift task. Feed-forward PDP models appear to form stimulus-driven associations. A Hopfield network should be extended to apply the test.
