Abstract:

An exposition is made of the potentiality of production systems as a model of the detailed control structure of humans. A detailed treatment is given of the elementary Sternberg reaction time experiments in binary classification as a means of exhibiting the uses of production systems. The investigation leads to a hypothesis for these experiments different from the usual one of exhaustive search, called the Decoding Hypothesis.
