[en] Distributed connectionists models of reasoning
must solve the problem of multiple instantiation
for two reasons. First, reasoning can involve two
or more instantiations of the same predicate or
object. Second, in a distributed representation,
two closely related concepts must share common
resources or nodes. Reasoning with these two
concepts requires that nodes pertaining to them
be instantiated twice. This paper presents a model
(INFERNET) that uses temporal synchrony
variable binding. It proposes a particular
solution to the problem of multiple instantiation
that involves the use of different oscillation
frequencies. This solution implies some
predictions. These predictions are tested on
human participants, and the results are presented
here. They confirm model predictions.
