    Simulating consciousness in a bilateral neural network: ''Nuclear'' and ''fringe'' awareness.Norman D. Cook - 1999 - Consciousness and Cognition 8 (1):62-93.
    A technique for the bilateral activation of neural nets that leads to a functional asymmetry of two simulated ''cerebral hemispheres'' is described. The simulation is designed to perform object recognition, while exhibiting characteristics typical of human consciousness-specifically, the unitary nature of conscious attention, together with a dual awareness corresponding to the ''nucleus'' and ''fringe'' described by William James (1890). Sensory neural nets self-organize on the basis of five sensory features. The system is then taught arbitrary symbolic labels for a small (...)

    The Triadic Roots of Human Cognition: “Mind” Is the Ability to go Beyond Dyadic Associations.Norman D. Cook - 2018 - Frontiers in Psychology 9:293649.
    Empirical evidence is reviewed indicating that the extraordinary aspects of the human mind are due to our species’ ability to go beyond simple “dyadic associations” and to process the relations among three items of information simultaneously. Classic explanations of the “triadic” nature of human skills have been advocated by various scholars in the context of the evolution of human cognition. Here I summarize the core processes as found in (i) the syntax of language, (ii) tool-usage, and (iii) joint attention. I (...)

    Correlations Between Input and Output Units in Neural Networks.Norman D. Cook - 1995 - Cognitive Science 19 (4):563-574.
    Correlation analyses of recent back‐propagation neural networks show that network results are due to imbalances in stimulus input. Conclusions concerning the effects of receptive field size, hemispheric specialization, and other issues of relevance to psychology cannot therefore be drawn until the dominating effects of low‐level correlations are removed. Statistical techniques for evaluating the stimulus materials for neural networks are introduced.

    Hemispheric dominance has its origins in the control of the midline organs of speech.Norman D. Cook - 2003 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 26 (2):216-217.
    Unlike all other lateral specializations, the necessity for unilateral dominance is clear only for the case of the motor control of the speech organs lying on the midline of the body and innervated from both hemispheres. All functional asymmetries are likely to be a consequence of this asymmetry of executive control.

    Localist representations and theoretical clarity.Norman D. Cook - 2000 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 23 (4):474-475.
    In the Localist Manifesto, Page enumerated several computational advantages that localist representations have over distributed representations, but the most important difference between such networks concerns their theoretical clarity. Distributed representations are normally closed to theoretical interpretation and, for that reason, contribute little to psychology, whereas the meaning of the information processing in networks using localist representations can be transparent.
