Description of this Book

This is the first volume in the Ellis Horwood series Advances in Cognitive Science . The series, which examines emergent themes in cognition, intends to provide an interdisciplinary overview of subjects that reflect the most up-to-date developments. Volume 1 collects a cross-section of advances and issues. The authors examine many topical subjects, commencing with the constraints placed on the brain by its neural architecture, by alternative cognitive architectures, and by mood. Some chapters investigate the access and application of knowledge in understanding, emphasizing the use of many types of semantic knowledge in the process of comprehension, and stressing how language comprehension hinges on aschematic knowledge. There is an account of syntactic closure problems and, in direct opposition, a chapter on a direct memory access parser which does not pass through a separate stage of syntactic analysis. An empirical account of the parsing process includes a suggestion that semantic and pragmatic factors must be taken into account.
