Multi-Agent Simulation as a Tool for Investigating Cognitive–Developmental Theory

Abstract

We discuss an innovative application of computer-based simulations in the study of cognitive development. Our work builds on previous contributions to the field, in which theoretical models of cognition were implemented in the form of computer programs in attempt to predict human reasoning (Newell & Simon, 1972; Fischer & Rose, 1999). Our computer serves… (More)
