Description: 

In this course, we will learn how to develop computational cognitive models within a unified theory of the human mind referred to as a cognitive architecture. We will briefly review a number of existing cognitive architectures and discuss their main applications. Then, we will study one of the most popular cognitive architectures, ACT-R, and will learn to develop a few simple models that account for human behavior in a number of classic paradigms from experimental psychology.
