Synopsis

Neural networks, adaptive statistical models based on an analogy with the structure of the brain, can be used to estimate the parameters of some population using one (or a few) exemplars at a time. This book introduces readers to the basic models of neural networks and compares and contrasts these models using other statistical models. Through the use of examples that can be computed by hand or with a simple calculator, the authors describe and explain the various models.

His recent work is concerned with face and person perception, odor perception, and with computational modeling of these processes. He is also developing statistical techniques to analyze the structure of large data sets as found, for example, in brain imaging and sensory evaluation (e.g., principal component analysis, correspondence analysis, PLS-Regression, STATIS, DISTATIS, discriminant correspondence analysis, multiple factor analysis, multi-table analysis, additive tree representations,...). In the past decade, he has published over 80 papers (plus 5 books and 3 edited volumes) on these topics. He teaches or has taught classes in cognition, computational modeling, experimental design, multivariate statistics, and the analysis of brain imaging data.
