It's not how many dimensions you have, it's what you do with them: Evidence from speech perception

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 28 (1):31-31 (2005)
Contrary to Pothos, rule- and similarity-based processes cannot be distinguished by dimensionality. Rather, one must consider the goal of the processing: what the system will do with the resulting representations. Research on speech perception demonstrates that the degree to which speech categories are gradient (or similarity-based) is a function of the utility of within-category variation for further processing.
