Nearly all categorization research has been concerned largely with learners' abilities to classify exemplars of categories, as in making diagnoses. However, the realization is emerging that other aspects of categorization may be of at least as much practical importance. This chapter examines some of these aspects. Topics covered include standard versus observational training procedures, learning based on average or configural prototypes, inducing prototypes, predicting features from categories, and pattern completion.

Keywords:   categorization, categories, observational training, learning, configural prototypes, average prototypes, pattern completion
