Some Remarks on Emotion, Cognition, and Connectionist Systems
Connectionist theories are currently being considered as models of human cognitive processes. If they prove successful in describing cognitive processes, then they may also prove valuable in explaining other processes that display learning, memory, and cognition. Emotions and motivational states can be said to exhibit such processes, and so connectionist theories may someday model emotion and motivational factors. Before this happens, though, the exact roles of learning, memory, and cognition with respect to emotion must first be ascertained.
