    Solution Preview

    One of the reasons that the Turing machine is of interest to Cognitive Psychologists is that it is a finite devise that is capable, in principle, of generating an infinite variety of behaviors. This is possible because the finite properties of a Turing machine consist of a set ...

    Solution Summary

    This solution explores and reconciles (if possible) two views held by Cognitive scientists e.g an infinite potential variety of human behavior versus infinite behavior being produced by a finite devise, such as the Turing machine.
