  Title Minimum Description Length and Cognitive Modeling Type (up) Book Chapter
  Year 2005 Publication Advances in minimum description length theory and applications. Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume Issue Pages 411-433  
  Keywords minimum description length; retention models; cognitive modeling; Fisher information; Mdl; cognitive science; mathematical models; Mathematical Modeling  
  Abstract The question of how one should decide between competing explanations of data is at the heart of the scientific enterprise. In the field of cognitive science, mathematical models are increasingly being advanced as explanations of cognitive behavior. In the application of the minimum description length (MDL) principle to the selection of these models, one of the major obstacles is to calculate Fisher information. In this study we provide a general formula to calculate Fisher information for models of cognition that assume multinomial or normal distributions. We also illustrate the usage of the formula for models of categorization, information integration, retention, and psychophysics. Further, we compute and compare the complexity penalty terms of two recent versions of MDL (Rissanen 1996, 2001) for a multinomial model. Finally, the adequacy of MDL is demonstrated in the selection of retention models. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2007 APA, all rights reserved) (from the chapter)

  Abstract describes his discovery of what has come to be referred to as the “Simon effect,” which is that reaction times to symbolic stimuli are affected by the relation of an irrelevant stimulus location to the relevant response location / also reviews the progression of Simon's research, stressing the logic behind his experiments and the crucial findingsthis chapter deals with [a] . . . type of compatibility, which might be classified as a variety of spatial comaptibility / we will describe a series of related experiments that demonstrated that the location of a stimulus provides an irrelevant directional cue that affects the time required to process the meaning of the stimulus / in other words, there seems to be a strong stereotypic tendency to respond initially to the directional component of a stimulus rather than to its symbolic content (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2004 APA, all rights reserved) (from the book) (from the chapter)
