A nonassociative schema theory of cognitive incompatibility Asghar Iran-Nejad Cognitive psychology has generated much research on similarity and the role it plays in the organization of knowledge in long-term memory. By comparison, little is known about the related concept of cognitive incompatibility. Building on the idea that mental schemas are incompatible to the extent they share elements, I discuss in this paper a non-connectionist schema theory of incompatibility and compare it with the connectionist schema theory proposed by Rumelhart, Smolensky, McClelland, and Hinton (1986).
