A method for using semantic pointers to encode syntactic relations in a spiking network is introduced in chapter 4. The method allows binding of different semantic pointers by combining them in a nonlinear manner. This method is demonstrated in a model of fluid intelligence. Methods for learning structural manipulations, and the scalability of the approach are discussed. The chapter concludes with a consideration of using this method of binding to account for complex lexical semantics. Tutorial: Structured representations in neurons

Keywords:   binding, syntax, lexical semantics, circular convolution, fluid intelligence
