Humans can learn about how objects are related and generalise this information to solve new tasks. In my talk, I will ask how this is possible. I will discuss recent work in which brain imaging was used to ask how neural representations change when humans learn new relational information. I will describe a computational theory of how this happens using connectionist models.
