    We present a preliminary model of binding mental objects to their respective spoken names that aims at mimicking fMRI-tested behaviour. Our model consists of three mutually interconnected association modules which store mental objects, represent their spoken names and bind these to the mental objects, respectively. The auditory information is supplied to the unimodal association auditory module from a sensory or primary auditory module. The mental objects map is created during the learning process by information from the primary objects module. The information exchanged between modules is reduced to a 3-dimensional mental a??labela??. It is shown that this highly non-linear dynamic network is able to quickly reconcile spoken names with congruent and incongruous a??thoughtsa??.
