Tom,    (01)

The connective 'vs' is inappropriate in such discussions:    (02)

> mental representation vs. connectionism.    (03)

There is no logical reason why there should be any conflict between
those studies.  There are neurons in the brain with strong
interconnections.  Infants are predisposed to learn languages
at an early stage.  The evidence for mental models is very
strong.  People often reason in fuzzy ways.  But they also
reason in very precise and crisp ways.    (04)

Any theory that cannot explain all those phenomena (plus
many more that would fill volumes to enumerate) is inadequate.
As neuroscientists emphasize, nobody knows how the brain works,
and it is a serious *blunder* to exclude any phenomena.    (05)
