Modelling Perceptual Phenomena using Temporal Abstraction Networks

By Neil Madden and Brian Logan


We present Temporal Abstraction Networks, a novel cognitive architecture which can be used to model a variety of perceptual phenomena. The architecture is based on processes operating on collections of time-limited buffers in a parallel model of cognition and draws on aspects of the Multiple Drafts theory [Dennett and Kinsbourne, 1992]. We briefly describe the architecture and show how it can be used to model two relevant experiments from the literature: colour phi [Kolers and von Grünau, 1976], and the cutaneous “rabbit ” [Geldard and Sherrick, 1972].
