REF networks pay attention to areas of input space detennined by their vectors. They also pay attention to individual dimensions in the input detennined by their nonn weights. The REF network is therefore able to both template or exemplar based accounts of categorization, and feature accounts. What sort of representations did the networks learn? centre space model based 24 A representation can be described as localist if there is a set of network parameters that can be interpreted as representing an object, at a suitable level of analysis.

So a zero might constitute evidence that the value of the greater-than relationship is false. In such cases the GSI of the task will be non-zero but still low. The general rule is that the more characteristically relational a problem is, the less significant are absolute values and the lower the geometric separability of the task is likely to be. Boundary methods tend to perform poorly on all relational problems. , the less significant absolute values are in the determination of output) the lower the GSI and the poorer the expected performance.
