The interface between neural computing and psychology is a particularly fruitful area of research. The development of neural computation has supplied researchers in cognitive neuroscience with tools which enable them to implement theories which would otherwise remain "black box" techniques. It has also allowed computer scientists to implement systems based on how real brains appear to function, thus providing effective pattern recognition systems. Together they provide a vital two-pronged approach to perception. This volume contains refereed versions of papers presented at the 3rd Neural Computation and Psychology Workshop, held at Stirling University, Scotland, from 31 August - 2 September 1994. The resulting volume provides an up-to-date view of the neural computation perspective on cognition, with particular emphasis on the following topics: cognition, low-level perception, audition and vision, and sequence learning.
