Simultaneous Type/Serial Token Model

The Simultaneous Type/Serial Token model (Bowman & Wyble 2007) is a neural network simulation of the encoding of stimuli into working memory.  This model stores visual tokens to mark the occurence of visual stimuli (e.g. types) to encode their identity and temporal order.

The model replicates the attentional blink phenomenon (Raymond, Shapiro & Arnell 1992) and suggests that this apparent deficit is actually a cognitive strategy that facilitates the encoding of episodically distinct visual representations.
