This book is a definitive reference source for the growing, increasingly more important, and interdisciplinary field of computational cognitive modeling, that is, computational psychology. It combines breadth of coverage with definitive statements by leading scientists in this field. Research in computational cognitive modeling explores the essence of cognition through developing detailed, process-based understanding by specifying computational mechanisms, structures, and processes… Expand

Thirty years of Marr's Vision: Levels of Analysis in Cognitive Science
Thirty years after the publication of Marr's seminal book Vision (Marr, 1982) the papers in this topic consider the contemporary status of his influential conception of three distinct levels ofExpand
Cognitive Science: An Introduction to the Science of the Mind
The Third Edition of this popular and engaging text consolidates the interdisciplinary streams of cognitive science to present a unified narrative of cognitive science as a discipline in its ownExpand
Robust Modeling in Cognitive Science
In an attempt to increase the reliability of empirical findings, psychological scientists have recently proposed a number of changes in the practice of experimental psychology. Most current reformExpand
Cognitive Modeling for Cognitive Engineering
This chapter provides a comparative survey of computational models of psychological development. To understand how computational modeling can contribute to the study of psychological development, itExpand
Computational models and organizational psychology: Opportunities abound
Computational modeling has long been advocated as an important tool in the scientist’s tool shed. They are common in physical and biological sciences, but are very rare in organizational psychology.Expand
Models and mechanisms in psychological explanation
It is argued that cognitive models of the systems that underlie psychological capacities, while superficially similar to mechanistic models, have a substantially more complex relation to the real underlying system. Expand
Computational modeling/cognitive robotics complements functional modeling/experimental psychology
Abstract This position paper explores the possible contributions to the science of psychology from insights obtained by building and experimenting with cognitive robots. First, the functionalExpand
Contributions of Dynamic Systems Theory to Cognitive Development.
Examination of the contributions of dynamic systems theory to the field of cognitive development reveals that computational modeling is having an impact on empirical research in cognitive development; however, this impact does not extend to neural and clinical research. Expand
