  • Not to be arrogant, I hope, but as I read this article I couldn't help but think of microprocessor interupts and parallel processing. Might there be some theories about attention that attempt to make parallels with these well-understood mechanical forms of information processing? Someone has probably already explored such models, no? --RickD 20:53, 14 December 2008 (EST)
It is interesting to note that there is a Philosophical approach that likens the mind to a machine, I will get to adding that when I do the Philosophy of Mind article. I was planning on elaborating a bit more on brain and perhaps soul, but I see that the soul is a bit of a touchy article, so I might shy somewhat from that. As for a direct answer to your question, the Cognitive approach (which literally views the mind as a predicitable machine) is the closest to a model that compares to information processing.
