Among the prominent types of neural networks studied by cognitive
scientists, Hopfield networks most closely model the high-degree of
interconnectedness in neurons of the human cortex. The papers by
McClellan et al. (1995) and Maurer (2005) discuss learning systems in
the human brain-mind system and the role of Hopfield networks as models
for actual human learning including sequence of items learned. This
resonates with Chomsky’s emphasis on the role of syntax and word
sequence in language learning.
1) Use the following information to ensure successful completion of the assignment:
a) This assignment uses a grading rubric.
b) Include two scholarly resources other than those in the
assigned readings with appropriate references and in-text citations.

2) Write a paper of 1,250-1,500 words in which you argue for or
against the notion that Hopfield networks not only share characteristics
of learning in the brain-mind system but also that they are useful
