Chapter 9 applies the criteria introduced in chapter 8 to several recent approaches to modeling biological cognition. Each approach is first introduced to highlight past accomplishments and strengths. The approaches cover symbolic (ACT-R), connectionist (synchrony-based approaches, neural blackboard architecture, ICS, and Leabra), and dynamicist (dynamic field theory) approaches. The ability of these approaches to address the CCC is discussed. The chapter concludes by situating the SPA in this analysis, describing similiarities and differences to past work.

Keywords:   ACT-R, ICS, neural blackboard architecture, dynamic field theory, Leabra, theories of cognition, cognitive modeling
