Final Exam

back propagation process where learning occur in a connectionist network, an error signal is transmitted backward thru the network. backward-transmitted error signal provides info needed to adjust weights in the network to achieve the correct output signal for a stimulus
basic level Rosch's categorization scheme, level below global (superordniate) level ("table" for superordinate "furniture"). basic level is psychologically special b/c it is level above which much info is lost and below which little is gained
categorization process by which objects are placedin categories
category groups of objects that belong together b/c they belong to the same class of objects ("houses", "furniture" or "schools")
category-specific knowledge impairment result of brain damage in which the patient has trouble recognizing objects in a specific category
