Abstract

The capacity to store and retrieve information is a property common to biological organisms and certain artefacts. Psychological models of human memory fall into two rival classes: a) "bionic" models which draw inspiration from the structural and functional properties of the central nervous system (computo bionic models); b) "symbolic information processing" models in which the inspiration for description and explanation of natural processes is drawn from the structural and functional properties of Von Neumann computers (computo-symbolic models).
