Mental Processing Unlike Computer Processing

Slashdot has coverage of this Cornell University news article comparing mental processing to computer processing.

From the article, "The theory that the mind works like a computer, in a series of distinct stages, was an important steppingstone in cognitive science, but it has outlived its usefulness, concludes a new Cornell University study. Instead, the mind should be thought of more as working the way biological organisms do: as a dynamic continuum, cascading through shades of grey."
