A Constructive Neural-Network Approach to Modeling Psychological Development
Shultz, Thomas R.
Cognitive Development, v27 n4 p383-400 Oct-Dec 2012
This article reviews a particular computational modeling approach to the study of psychological development--that of constructive neural networks. This approach is applied to a variety of developmental domains and issues, including Piagetian tasks, shift learning, language acquisition, number comparison, habituation of visual attention, concept learning, and theory of mind. Implications of this modeling for theoretical understanding of psychological development are considered. (Contains 9 figures.)
