  1. Patrick Juola (2002). Encapsulating Architecture and Encapsulating Processes. Behavioral and Brain Sciences 25 (6):759-759.
    Thomas & Karmiloff-Smith (T&K-S) raise the excellent and, in retrospect, obvious point that in a dynamic learning environment where feedback is possible, we should expect networks to adapt to damage by altering details of their behavior. We should therefore not expect that developmental disorders should result in “normal” modules. The implications of this point go much further, since interprocess dependency in the brain does not rely only on learned neural connections. This argues strongly against behavioral and process-related definitions, as (...)

  2. Emmanuel M. Pothos & Patrick Juola (2001). Linguistic Structure and Short Term Memory. Behavioral and Brain Sciences 24 (1):138-139.
    We provide additional support for Cowan's claim that short term memory (STM) involves a range of 3–5 tokens, on the basis of language correlational analyses. If language is at least partly learned, linguistic dependency structure should reflect properties of the cognitive components mediating learning; one such component is STM. In this view, the range over which statistical regularity extends in ordinary text would be suggestive of STM span. Our analyses of eight languages are consistent with STM span being about four (...)

  3. Kim Plunkett & Patrick Juola (1999). A Connectionist Model of English Past Tense and Plural Morphology. Cognitive Science 23 (4):463-490.
    The acquisition of English noun and verb morphology is modeled using a single-system connectionist network. The network is trained to produce the plurals and past tense forms of a large corpus of monosyllabic English nouns and verbs. The developmental trajectory of network performance is analyzed in detail and is shown to mimic a number of important features of the acquisition of English noun and verb morphology in young children. These include an initial error-free period of performance on both nouns and (...)
