MATHEMATICAL MODELS IN PSYCHOLOGY

It is well-know that computational models have been widely applied in different fields of psychological research. The models can not only help researchers summarize the research findings but provide a processing account and model predictions for the human behavior. In this class, I will teach students to use R and cover a wide range of topics of mathematical psychology, parameter estimation methods and model selection which including threshold model, signal detection model, multinomial process tree model, similarity choice model, generalized context model, etc. By taking this course, students are able to construct their own models, do the mathematical simulation, apply the optimization techniques to fine a set of parameters that can maximize the likelihood.
