Relational complexity metric is effective when assessments are based on actual cognitive processes

  • Graeme S. Halford (a1), William H. Wilson (a2) and Steven Phillips (a3)
Abstract

The core issue of our target article concerns how relational complexity should be assessed. We propose that assessments must be based on actual cognitive processes used in performing each step of a task. Complexity comparisons are important for the orderly interpretation of research findings. The links between relational complexity theory and several other formulations, as well as its implications for neural functioning, connectionist models, the roles of knowledge, and individual and developmental differences, are considered.
