Cambridge Handbook of Computational Psychology by Ron Sun

Book Description

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 and various cognitive functionalities through developing detailed, process-based understanding by specifying computational mechanisms, structures, and processes. Given the complexity of the human mind and its manifestation in behavioral flexibility, process-based computational models may be necessary to explicate and elucidate the intricate details of the mind. The key to understanding cognitive processes is often in fine details. Computational models provide algorithmic specificity: detailed, exactly specified, and carefully thought-out steps, arranged in precise yet flexible sequences. These models provide both conceptual clarity and precision at the same time. This book substantiates this approach through overviews and many examples.

Books By Author Ron Sun

Anatomy of Mind by Ron Sun Anatomy of Mind, Hardback (June 2016)

This book aims to understand human cognition and psychology through a comprehensive computational theory of the mind, namely, a "cognitive architecture."

Duality of the Mind by Ron Sun Duality of the Mind, Paperback (July 2013)

A broad framework for studying human cognition based on a new approach that is characterized by its focus on the dichotomy of, and the interaction between, explicit and implicit cognition and a computational model that implements this framework.

Cognition and Multi-agent Interaction by Ron Sun Cognition and Multi-agent Interaction, Paperback (May 2008)

This book explores the intersection between individual cognitive modeling and modeling of multi-agent interaction.

Author Biography - Ron Sun

Dr. Ron Sun is Professor of Cognitive Science at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. A well-known researcher in the field of cognitive science, Sun explores the fundamental structure of the human mind and aims for the synthesis of many interesting intellectual ideas into one coherent model of cognition. The goal is to form a generic cognitive architecture that captures a variety of cognitive processes in a unified way and thus to provide unified explanations for a wide range of cognitive data. To do so, for the past two decades, he has been advocating the use of hybrid connectionist-symbolic systems in developing cognitive models and he has been developing theories of human skill learning and human everyday reasoning as the centerpieces of the cognitive architecture.
