John Robert Anderson was awarded an Early Career Award for contributions concerning development of theoretical models of mental processes involved in language acquisition, comprehension, and language use. He shows how human memory might be organized according to declarative and procedural knowledge and how this knowledge might be used when we understand a sentence, verify it, learn its content, search memory and answer questions about it, draw implications from it, and plan and execute effective actions based on it. Anderson's ideas are translated into computer programs that simulate the behavior of interest. Alongside his theorizing, he has carried on a vigorous program of experimentation that evaluates and forwards his theorizing. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)
