KNW 2308 - Mathematical Models of Cognition


Credits: 3

Examines mathematical models at various levels of idealization, including models that capture fine-grained changes within individual neurons, models that consider the interaction of large networks of neurons, computational models that describe stages of visual processing, and models that describe ways in which ideal rational agents would update probabilistic beliefs and make decisions in light of new evidence. Considers the relations between these different sorts of models, their respective strengths and weaknesses, and how they can be used to test hypotheses about cognition in humans and animals and for designing computer systems with artificial intelligence. Prerequisite: MATH 1338 .
