Beschreibung:

An accessible introduction to the principles of computational and mathematical modeling in psychology and cognitive scienceThis practical and readable work provides students and researchers, who are new to cognitive modeling, with the background and core knowledge they need to interpret published reports, and develop and apply models of their own. The book is structured to help readers understand the logic of individual component techniques and their relationships to each other.

Computational Modelling in Psychology introduces the principles of using computational models in psychology and provides a clear idea about how model construction, parameter estimation and model selection are carried out in practice. The book is written at a level that permits readers with a background in cognition, but without any modeling expertise. The authors present the content step-by-step by moving from the basic concepts of modeling to issues and application. The book is structured to make clear the logic of individual component techniques and how they relate to each other. The authors focus on the logic of models and the types of arguments that can be made from them, as well as providing detailed practical knowledge about parameter-estimation techniques and model selection and so on. Readability is emphasized throughout to make the necessary mathematics and programming less daunting for beginners. The book's supporting web page provides additional information and programming code.
