Simulating Hyperactivity in ADHD using Reinforcement Learning

Hyperactivity is a key symptom in those diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. In the present work, we model hyperactivity in terms of a twoarmed bandit task from Reinforcement Learning, where initial state-values are set abnormally high. Extinction of these state-values when neither action is very rewarding induces repetitive switching… (More)
