In the first section of his celebrated 1936 paper A. Turing says of the machines he defines that at each stage of their operation they can 'effectively remember' some of the symbols they have scanned before. In this paper I explicate the motivation and content of this remark of Turing's, and argue that it reveals what could be labeled as a connectionist conception of the human mind.
