An excellent turnout this year from the CNRG (Computational Neuroscience Research Group) at the 38th Annual Conference of the Cognitive Science Society in Philadelphia.
Sean Aubin gave a presentation on a model of mathematical development (from a counting based strategy for addition to a recall based strategy) replicating human data in terms of accuracy and reaction times. This paper also received the prize for best applied cognition paper. Congratulations! [Paper]
Sugandha Sharma presented a poster for a model of context dependent decision making in the prefrontal cortex. The model closely matched both behavioural and neural data obtained from monkeys performing a context sensitive perceptual decision making task. [Paper]
