29 October 2009, Formal models for learning processes: Old tricks and new developments

Date: Thursday 29 October 2009
Location: Room E020, University of Amsterdam Building E (Economy), Roetersstraat 11 (Roeterseiland), Amsterdam

The symposium starts with a lecture by Prof. Bill Batchelder, who will give an overview of the history of mathematical learning models. He will discuss how recent advances in statistical computing have renewed the relevance of traditional, and seemingly out-dated, models for learning and memory. This lecture is followed by presentations of recent developments and applications of learning models in the areas of category learning, probabilistic learning, causal learning, classical and operant conditioning, and discrimination learning.
