We propose \textit{restricted quasi Bayesian networks} as an efficient prototyping tool for designing computational models of individual cortical areas of the brain. Restricted quasi Bayesian networks are simplified Bayesian networks that only distinguish probability value 0 from other values. Using our tool, it is possible to concentrate on the essential part of model design and efficiently construct prototypes. We demonstrate that restricted quasi Bayesian networks actually work well as a prototyping tool by implementing a syntactic parser for an ambiguous English sentence.
