Behavioral and Brain Sciences 31 (6):727-728 (2008)
Any theory of semantic cognition is also a theory of concepts. There are two ways to construe the models presented by Rogers & McClelland (R&M) in Semantic Cognition.

If we construe the hidden-layer representations as concepts, the models provide a simulation of conceptual change
