Kevin Gluck, Glenn Gunzelmann, Jonathan Gratch, Eva Hudlicka, Frank Ritter: “Modeling the Impact of Cognitive Moderators on Human Cognition and Performance”

July 26, 2006 | Vancouver, British Columbia

Speaker: Kevin Gluck, Glenn Gunzelmann, Jonathan Gratch, Eva Hudlicka, Frank Ritter
Host: 28th Annual Conference of the Cognitive Science Society (CogSci 2006)

Cognitive moderators, such as emotions, personality, stress, and fatigue, represent an emerging area of research within the cognitive science community and are increasingly acknowledged as important and ubiquitous influences on cognitive processes. This symposium brings together scientists engaged in research to develop models that help us better understand the mechanisms through which these factors impact human cognition and performance. There are two unifying themes across the presentations. One theme is a commitment to developing computational models useful for simulating the processes that produce the effects and phenomena of interest. The second theme is a commitment to assessing the validity of the models by comparing their performance against empirical human data.
