Previously there was a request for information about human computational
models. I tried to respond to the poster, but my mailer couldn't find his
address. Here's the reply, slightly condensed:
There are many neural net human, computational models, particularly in
the study of vision. Because I'm not sure what kind of model you're
interested in (derived from empirical data, functional equivalency, etc.)
I won't list any articles. However, a good overview of the use of NN
models of the human brain can be found in
Patricia Churchland and Terrence Sejnowski,
_THE_COMPUTATIONAL_BRAIN_, (Cambridge: MIT Press, 1992).
For articles about neurocomputational models, look in
and I think that there's a new one called
Look for articles by
Zipser, Sereno, Sejnowski, Lynch, Granger, Poggio, Hinton,
Cohen, Grossberg, Carpenter, McNaughton, etc.
These authors have written about anything from hippocampal STM to
hyperacuity in vision.
Hope that helps!
