Jeff Brooks received his BA in Philosophy, with a minor in Cognitive & Brain Sciences, from Tufts University in 2012. Proceedings of the Twenty-seventh Annual Meeting of the Cognitive Science Society, 163-168. Research mentors and collaborators may be found in Psychology as well as other Departments at USF. But in connectionist architectures, there is no distinction between symbols and rules: instead, knowledge is represented by patterns of activation distributed over a large number of processing elements.
