Fall 2014: Meetings 5 and 6Tue 28 October 2014 by Deniz Rudin, Nate Arnett, Karl DeVries, Adrian Brasoveanu
Our meeting today was very lively and useful. Deniz led a very enlightening discussion of the activation equations in chapter 3 of Anderson (2009), and Nate and Karl contributed extensive and very helpful clarifications.
For our next meeting (the 5th one this quarter, on Nov. 4), we decided to read 2 papers that discuss applications of ACT-R to linguistic phenomena:
- Vasishth, S., Brüssow, S., Lewis, R. L., & Drenhaus, H. (2008) Processing polarity: How the ungrammatical intrudes on the grammatical. Cognitive Science 32, 685-712
- Lewis, R. L., Vasishth, S. and Van Dyke, J. A.(2006). Computational principles of working memory in sentence comprehension. Trends in Cognitive Science 10, 447-454
Karen will start the discussion of chapter 4 of Anderson (2009) only in our 6th meeting on Nov. 18 (note the date; there won’t be any meeting on Nov. 11 — it’s Veterans day).
