This page contains publications on the relationship between connectionism and analogy. (Since analogy is strongly related to metaphor, some of the publications therefore implicitly address metaphor as well.)

Other pages contain publications about connectionism but not analogy. To get to these please go via THIS LINK into my home page.

The papers emanate from research that was in part supported by grants from AFOSR, NSF and NASA.
