  2. Protein Analysis Meets Visual Word Recognition: A Case for String Kernels in the Brain.Thomas Hannagan & Jonathan Grainger - 2012 - Cognitive Science 36 (4):575-606.
    It has been recently argued that some machine learning techniques known as Kernel methods could be relevant for capturing cognitive and neural mechanisms (Jäkel, Schölkopf, & Wichmann, 2009). We point out that ‘‘String kernels,’’ initially designed for protein function prediction and spam detection, are virtually identical to one contending proposal for how the brain encodes orthographic information during reading. We suggest some reasons for this connection and we derive new ideas for visual word recognition that are successfully put to the (...)

    Holographic String Encoding.Thomas Hannagan, Emmanuel Dupoux & Anne Christophe - 2011 - Cognitive Science 35 (1):79-118.
    In this article, we apply a special case of holographic representations to letter position coding. We translate different well-known schemes into this format, which uses distributed representations and supports constituent structure. We show that in addition to these brain-like characteristics, performances on a standard benchmark of behavioral effects are improved in the holographic format relative to the standard localist one. This notably occurs because of emerging properties in holographic codes, like transposition and edge effects, for which we give formal demonstrations. (...)

    Explaining Word Recognition, Reading, the Universe, and Beyond: A Modest Proposal.Jonathan Grainger & Thomas Hannagan - 2012 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 35 (5):288-289.
    Frost proposes a new agenda for reading research, whereby cross-linguistic experiments would uncover linguistic universals to be integrated within a universal theory of reading. We reveal the dangers of following such a call, and demonstrate the superiority of the very approach that Frost condemns.
