    Representation Development, Perceptual Learning, and Concept Formation.I. P. L. McLaren, Andy J. Wills & S. Graham - 2011 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 34 (3):141-142.
    We argue for an example of based on Diamond and Carey's (1986) work on expertise and recognition, which is not made use of in The Origin of Concepts. This mechanism for perceptual learning seems to have all the necessary characteristics in that it is innate, domain-specific (requires stimulus sets possessing a certain structure), and demonstrably affects categorisation in a way that strongly suggests it will influence concept formation as well.

    Both Rules and Associations Are Required to Predict Human Behaviour.I. P. L. McLaren - 2009 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 32 (2):216-217.
    I argue that the dual-process account of human learning rejected by Mitchell et al. in the target article is informative and predictive with respect to human behaviour in a way that the authors' purely propositional account is not. Experiments that reveal different patterns of results under conditions that favour either associative or rule-based performance are the way forward.
