Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. James Lloyd (Jay) McClelland (born in Cambridge, MA, USA December 1, 1948) is the Lucie Stern Professor at Stanford University, where he is currently the Chair of the Psychology Department. He received his Ph.D. in Cognitive Psychology from the University of Pennsylvania in 1975. He is best known for his work concerning Parallel Distributed Processing, applying connectionist models (or neural networks) to explain cognitive phenomena such as spoken word recognition and visual word recognition. McClelland is to a large extent responsible for the "connectionist revolution" of the 1980s, which saw a large increase in scientific interest for connectionism.
